(i) a will, a codicil or an order of a court that varied or modified the provisions of a will or a codicil; or

(ii) an intestacy or an order of a court that varied or modified the application, in relation to the estate of a deceased person, of the provisions of the law relating to the distribution of the estates of persons who die intestate;


(b) that consists of the property of a person who has become bankrupt, being property that has vested in The Official Receiver in Bankruptcy, or in a registered trustee, under the Bankruptcy Act 1966 ;


(c) that is administered under Part XI of the Bankruptcy Act 1966 ; or


(d) that consists of property of a kind referred to in paragraph 102AG(2)(c) ;

99A(3A)  


For the purposes of the application of paragraph (3)(a) in relation to a trust estate of the kind referred to in paragraph (2)(a), a reference in that first-mentioned paragraph to the trust estate shall be read as including a reference to the person as a result of whose death the trust estate arose.
