Dispute Follows Unclear Description in Will
05 April 2012
Lack of clarity in a will has led to a High Court battle over a vintage Bentley.
The car was owned by a 90-year-old woman when she died. Her will left her ‘principal motor car’ to her partner of 40 years, Adolf Weidner, 67. He claims this was the only car she owned when she died and that she had transferred the ownership of the only other car she had owned in recent years, a Volvo, to him in 1992.
The woman’s son, Robert Watkins, was appointed her executor in the will and he sold the Bentley for a sum said to be in the region of £200,000.
Mr Weidner is suing Mr Watkins, who disputes his claim to ownership of the Bentley.
