James MacDougald discusses the case of The Donkey Sanctuary v. Bacchus [2020] WTLR 1450, a recent High Court decision on post-death deeds of variation, the circumstances in which the executors of a dead person can vary that person’s entitlement on an earlier death, and when a decision of that kind will be ultra vires or voidable under the reformulated Hastings-Bass principle or the doctrine of equitable mistake.
