Will Interpreted to Bequeath “Business Interest”

Decedent’s will contained only one bequest, to his brother of the “real estate interest” in the bar the decedent co-owned with his brother.  Because the will had no residuary clause, the bar was in a leased property which the decedent did not own, and the express purpose of the will was “regarding my business interest” in the bar, the will was interpreted to leave all of the decedent’s interests in the bar to his brother.  Estate of Daniel Avington, 9 Fid.Rep.3d 238, O.C. No. 1002 DE of 2017 (Philadelphia O.C. 4/23/2018).
