  1. As I posted. I am not sure if this site is the best place for this sort of thing, but I am hoping to find out more about this so as to try to negate what I strongly suspect will be a contentious time when my mother dies. I live abroad and visited my mother in the UK when she turned 99 last month, as I have done for the last 9 or 10 years. She was pretty healthy last year but has begun to show her great age this year. Although still fairly compos mentis, she has become quite deaf and started to become more forgetful and confused. She can still get about somewhat but is now also very sl
  2. Half of Britons have not made a will, leaving them with no control over what will happen to their assets after they die, new research from Will Aid has revealed. Over a third (35%) of those without a will have children aged under 18, meaning they have no legal say in who would look after their children if they died. While young people are the least likely to have written a will, 19% of those aged over 55 have also neglected to make one, the charity's research reveals.

  3. "A daughter whose late mother left her whole estate to animal charities has won a six-figure payout in a decision legal experts have said could make wills more open to challenge. Heather Ilott has been awarded £164,000 by the Court of Appeal following a lengthy legal battle after she was initially left nothing by her mother M elita Jackson, who died in July 2004 at 70. Mrs Jackson wished her net estate of around £486,000 to be split between The Blue Cross, the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, with no provision f
  4. I have a question regarding wills in Scotland. My father was made trustee of a will of a family friend in 1998. He has recently passed away. Since his death, another person has came forward to claim to being a trustee. However, the solicitor dealing with his estate had claimed there was no will. What steps should the solicitor be taking to check if there is indeed a will? Also. it has been brought to my fathers attention that the other supposed trustee has been sen taking items from the deceased persons home. Should he be doing this at the present moment? Also, a good friend of the now de
  5. My mother died and her second husband was named as the sole Executor of her estate (that is another issue not covered here). Her second husband received Probate and was given the legal position of Executor and Trustee, as well as being one of several beneficiaries. The Probate Document which he has signed as being 'a true and accurate representation' of her assets is in fact not true or accurate. I have evidence to show she had more assets at the time of her death than he has declared. He has withheld assets from the Probate document. This is ‘fraud’. I contacted Santand
  6. Hi I'm new here and not sure if I'm on the right forum or not. My brother is an executor and a major beneficiary (as am I) of my late uncle's will. I have been emailing his lawyer as my brother would not let me even park on the drive of my late uncle's house, half of which as well as half of his estate, has been left to me. I was told today that my brother has disposed of the contents of the house, which is now on the market, as they were worthless. Surely, those contents were half mine and he had no right to dispose of them. Can I take any action against him for this? It would be Scott
  7. I am trying to find a Solicitor to look into the mis-handlingof my parents Will/s. I am not looking for a freebie, so if you are a Solicitorthat specialises in this sort of thing, please PM me. I’m not interested in a ‘duty’ solicitor type who just wantsto fill forms in, but one that will actually fight my corner. To other readers: If you can recommend a Solicitor that’s acted foryou in a similar manner, please feel free to either PM me or put their detailshere (with their permission). Thank you for reading this.
  8. My brother and I were appointed as joint executors of my mothers will. My brother is (mainly due to geographical and time constraints) carrying out most of the administration and recently requested that I write a letter making him sole executor “To save time getting documents signed by both of us”. My question is, do both executors have to sign all documents, or can we designate that one can sign with the other remaining to simply monitor the progress and view documents if requested by other members of the family (Four brothers in total) I trust my brother, but having seen some of the horror
