  • Delaying sale of property due to dog.

    Hey all, my mother has re written her will various times recently and I am the executor. In the latest version she has stated the property she resides in cannot be sold until her dog passes, my sister will move in to care for the dog.

    ​​​​​​Given where her health is I am looking at the practicality of doing this, has anyone got advice on how this would be possible out side of setting up a trust for the property until the dog dies?

    What happens if your sister's circumstances change and she is unable to move in? Or if she moves in and dies before the dog? Does the will allow for these possible events? The trustees could face this problem if the property is put in trust until the dog dies.
    Hopefully your mother's will states that you and your sister both inherit her property which cannot be sold until the dog dies. You could both own the property as tenants in common and agree that when the dog dies one of you will buy the others share of the property or sell the property on the market and split the proceeds.

      How old is the dog?

        And is it a pedigree hound?
