It is relatively commonplace for promises to be made, particularly between family members that certain gifts will be left to them following their death.
This could be a small, sentimental token, or it could be far more substantial. Such promises might be made to encourage family members to offer care through old age, or illness or even to encourage investment in property, or to work in a business for free.
When promises of this nature are given, particularly when they are to the detriment of the person who has invested their time or money on the basis of the promise, then there can be a great disappointment when these promises are not fulfilled.
