Interpretations of Directions in Will for Home

Direction in will that the decedent’s youngest daughter (to whom letters of administration were granted) should provide “shelter” at the decedent’s home for any other child “with no place to live” did not prevent the ejectment of a child who was found to spend at least two or three nights every week at his wife’s residence and so had another place to live. The designation of the daughter to be the “principal owner” of the decedent’s home was interpreted to be a specific gift to her, so the consent of the other children was not needed for the sale of the house, and the decedent’s “whiches” that “all my children have to sign” to sell the home was found to be precatory. Flores Estate, 1 Fid.Rep.4th 201 (Philadelphia O.C. 2020).
