WILLS REASONABLE PROVISION: Ilott v Mitson to go all the way to Supreme Court
The charitable beneficiaries of the late Melita Jackson have obtained leave to go to the UK Supreme Court over the England & Wales Court of Appeal’s decision in Ilott v Mitson (2015 EWCA Civ 797). Mrs Jackson’s will was carefully drafted to disinherit her daughter Heather Ilott, but last year the Appeal Court granted Mrs Ilott a GBP163,000 ‘reasonable provision’ settlement from the estate on the basis that she was living on state benefits.
