  1. Update: My husband is now forging ahead with his Deputyship application after even more ‘changing of mind’ by his sister & further delays.. He has of course, engaged his own Solicitor who specialises in contentious Deputyship cases. Interestingly, in the last few weeks the sister was attempting to move their mother into a different care home without informing either of her 2 brothers.
  2. Thank you king12345 The Estate IS being handled by specialist contentious Solicitors. The current issue is the that the sister has now changed her mind regarding the Solicitors being my MILs Financial Deputy. She agreed to them acting months ago and now she doesn’t.

The Deputyship needs to be put in place ASAP as the mother will inherit from her late husbands Estate. The sister agreed to the firm of Solicitors to act as Financial Deputy. Currently, she has changed her mind.
  5. Summary: FIL died June 2017. Delay with Estate due to contention between 3 siblings, all of whom are Executors. Contentious Lawyers finally appointed to deal with Estate. MIL has Alzheimer’s & in a care home. She lacks capacity. The firm of Solicitors were engaged on the basis that not only do they handle late FILs Estate BUT were also engaged to act as MIL Financial Deputy as agreed by all 3 Executors. 1 of the Executors has now ‘changed her mind’. This particular Executor has been difficult since my FIL died. Her brother (my husband) had to see
