What is adeem

This is where a gift is made in a Last will and testament and is revoke or taken away within the lifetime of the testator. This may be unintentional, but the result is the same. 

e.g. A farther leaves his son his Jaguar E-Type in his will. Before the farther passes away the car is involved in an accident and with the insurance money he buys a Lotus ES300. 

As the jaguar no longer exists it can not be passed on to the son when the farther passes away if the gift is worded as a Jaguar E-Type. But if the will mentioned that the son will get the latest automobile the farther owned then he will inherit the Lotus ES300 car.
