Question Regarding Probate

Recommended Posts

Afternoon.

 

My mum died in July last year after complications during heart surgery.

 

My brother and her financial advisor are both Executors for her estate.

 

The financial advisor sent off for Probate end of September.

 

The request and demand for Inheritance Tax was paid towards end of October.

 

Both Executors got a letter from HMRC towards the end of November saying Probate will be sent within 12 weeks.

 

Am I right in thinking Probate should be due either this month or next month!?

 

You cannot phone Winchester Probate as the lines are all automated.

It sounds that way, yes.

 

ETA. The executors still need to sell any assets that your mother had before they can pay beneficiaries.

Thank you HB.

 

Appreciate that.

 

Will was straightford.

 

Me and brother to get 50/50 each.

 

Grand children to et £1000

 

My brother is getting 50 of value of estate.

 

I am getting £25K in cash, plus 50% each of outstanding value I understand my share is £250K plus half of the house an extra £200K.

 

I'm to have an allowance each month rather then lump sum.

 

Happy with that.
