AFAIK if you are the sole beneficiary, from reading the case provided above, at the point where the testator dies the property is yours

See Para 8

The appellant had a beneficial interest from the date of death and could have perfected the title had she seriously wished to do so. It was thus clear that she possessed capital over the prescribed limit of £8,000.

Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure nineteen nineteen and six, result happiness. Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure twenty pounds ought and six, result misery. The blossom is blighted, the leaf is withered, the god of day goes down upon the dreary scene, and—and in short you are for ever floored.
