submit a 1500 words paper on the topic Equity and Trusts.

Hi, need to submit a 1500 words paper on the topic Equity and Trusts. Testamentary capacity will be established if it can be shown that the testator had the required capacity while preparing the will and that the will was prepared in accordance with those instructions. It also appears unlikely that in Sara’s case, the disposition would take place in accordance with the intestacy rules, because her will clearly states that all her “real and personal” property has been left to Jim for a specified purpose. But the problem that arises, in this case, is the lack of clarity in what that purpose is. The will as it is written, allowing all of Sara’s property to pass to Jim is valid because it also satisfies the formality requirements,5 i.e, that a will is made in writing in the presence of two reliable witnesses. The question of whether it may be held to be lacking for want of knowledge and approval in the execution of the wills6 may arise in this case, because Jim was aware that Sara was making a will and naming him as a beneficiary. This may also provide grounds for Sara’s family to bring action against Jim for a breach of trust, as was the case in Mitchell v Halliwell7 where the Court ordered that a family member had an entitlement to disposition from a testator’s estate.
