Boswell and Others v Lawson and Others: CA 19 Apr 2011

The claimants sought rectification of the will, saying that it did not represent his testamentary wishes. A solicitor’s letter explaining the effect was mistaken. The judge had found the error to be in the letter, and not the wills.
Held: The appeal failed: ‘it seems to me that by some way the most probable reconciliation of the facts is that the wills did correctly reflect the instructions given by Mr and Mrs Appleby.’
