Many thanks for the link very useful. I just need to find what wording this disclaimer has to use.

they say you need advice ( nb moolah) and I wd accept it and pass it on to someone who wants it
BUT

" I give up and refuse the bequest of the last mrs X and her will, that you have informed me about. I realise by signing this letter that I lose forever any rights at all under that will"

Read the final duties page because it is quite obvious they think that you should be accepting and then passing on

Many thanks that’s very useful.

A deed of variation on the will. My sister did this when our mother left the house to both of us but my sister decided to give her half of the house to me. As the executor, I didn't have to do anything.
how frightfully decent SJ - a cousin of mine forced a sale on the siblings and division and then lost it all on the stock market
