This case shows the scope of the Court's powers when it comes to claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975.

In this case the house passed by survivorship to the deceased's brother, but he was ordered to return his joint interest in the former family home back into his deceased brother's estate for the benefit of the deceased's wife, since the Will failed to make reasonable provision for her. 

Given the deceased's apparently clear intentions to for his wife to continue living at the property, one has to wonder whether there was negligence on the part of the will drafter as to severance of the tenancy and advising on the property ownership/life interest.

In any case, it shows the broad scope for finding solutions for difficult cases such as this.
