PEAT Outcome - Relevant legal knowledge


Survivorship destinations have been with us for many years. Should they be retained or are they (as described by the late Professor Meston) an “abomination”.

Increasingly, the question of a survivorship destination is featuring in professional negligence claims.

This Zoom Webinar will consider claims arising on the basis of professional negligence in relation to survivorship destinations. It will also consider how survivorship destinations can be validly evacuated; in particular it will consider the duty of a Solicitor drafting a Will to take into account at least the possibility of a survivorship destination in a property in which the testator has an interest.


This webinar is aimed at private client practitioners.
