What are the effects of an agreement to convey property on the disposition of same property by Will?
My grandfather executed his Will last year in which he bequeathed his apartment in downtown New York to me. After his death a month back, a person approached me saying that my grandfather had entered into a contract to sell the apartment. He has copy of the contract with my grandfather’s signature. I found a copy of the same contract in my grandfather’s safe. Will there be any problem in me inheriting the apartment?01/17/2017 | Category: Wills and Estates | State: New York | #30401
“An agreement made by a testator to convey any property does not revoke a prior testamentary disposition of such property; but such property passes under the will to the beneficiaries, subject to whatever rights were created by such agreement.”
