Sell may be the wrong word.

Nothing exists to sell before the death. A will can be revoked at any time before death, and be challenged after death.

If you can find someone daft enough to pay money, perhaps.

Would you take a Werebank cheque?

The answer to the OP's question is that this is not unlawful.

The OP should, however, be extremely careful about making any representations or giving any warranties, whether expressly or by implication. He may not inherit what he expects, for any number of reasons. He may not live to inherit.
