      In my father’s olographic will, he left ___________ to his sister. Before he died, he gave her his home. I am the residuary legatee. On my DDL, I will not list the home as he gave it away before his death. However, does this bequest in his will simply lapse as an incompleted legacy? Very small estate – just some $ in bank accounts.

      Short answer: yes.

      Although we generally refer to this as a lapsed legacy or or vacant legacy rather than an incomplete legacy.
