John Picton recently posted an Article entitled, Kings v Bultitude - A Gift Lost to Charity, Wills, Trusts, & Estate Law eJournal (2017). Provided below is an abstract of the Article:
Charity might always be favoured by equity, but in this case it allowed a gift to fail. Unusual facts tested well-established legal principles; proving they deserve their reputation as the ‘difficult member’ of the family of charitable trusts jurisprudence. This note analyses the relevant legal rules as they were applied to the bequest, it then considers whether the gift could have been saved.
