Blending Clause Law and Legal Definition

Blending clause refers to a provision in a will disposing of both the testator's own property and the property over which the testator has a power of appointment. Blending clauses blend the two types of property such that they are treated as a single unit.

However, the blending of estates in a will is a question to be determined by the language of the donee's will. Blending may be total or partial. [Keen Estate, 1972 Pa. Dist. & Cnty. Dec. LEXIS 395 (Pa. C.P., Orphans' Ct. Div. 1972)]
