The Validity of a Will That Was Written Improperly

Someone wrote a will that says as follows: “I, the undersigned, instruct that which will be with my property that remains after my death. All of my property should go after my death to Mr. X and Mr. Y.” The will was dated and signed by the man and two lawyers. Beit din was unsuccessful in determining who the halachic inheritors are.
