At one stage they were actually dealing with both myself & the executor because he didn’t understand what he needed to do. Yes the selling conveyancers don’t have to talk to me as I am not the client.I fail to understand why the conveyancer for the selling of your late mothers property is even talking to you. Its his place to make sure the money from the sale of the property go the the executor of the estate. That should be who he is dealing with.
He cannot just pay it on to someone who is a beneficiary of the estate, surely?
The probate solicitor that you consulted was alarmed- alarmed at what? The executor not working quickly enough? Not paying out on an estate before he is satisified that he has paid all the debts to the estate ( and there are at least two- the DSS and the conveyancing charges)
if you are concerned, write or call the probate office and get them to deal with it. Its not a police matter
At the moment there is no wrong doing as such but obviously failure to put the house sale funds into my account to transfer to my solicitors would constitute that but he’s not exactly covering himself in glory over things he has not done & that is suspicious behaviour.I agree with Jessbow,you are obviously frustrated with the executor but don't seem to have any evidence of wrongdoing.I don't think the police would be interested tbh.
This must be a relief to you.So the selling conveyancers actually demanded that the executor go to his bank yesterday & set up an executor bank account in order for them to be satisfied that they could pay the house sale proceeds into the correct bank account & this he has finally done.
Obviously he should have done this months ago & maybe he has held up the completion date again. Still waiting to hear.
That would not be good. I hope we hear some positive news soon.
thank you @Marcelle123 for your positivity in these times, it is much needed!This must be a relief to you.
Hoping that it will all be sorted soon.
Just to let you know that I am reading your thread every day, and thinking of you. xx
I don’t envy you having executed 3 wills at all. The thing was that my mum would not have had any kind of clue what an executor really has to do when she chose who would do it & maybe she thought it would be a lot easier.Kikki,I think you are frustrated and worried(understandably)about the time things have taken.I have executed 3 wills,I took between 6- 12 months to distribute the estates.I would not have distributed one penny if there was any outstanding debt.The duties of an executor are onerous and not to be taken lightly.I know you have never been happy with your late Mum's choice but it was her decision to make.I do hope things begin to fall into place for you now.
Great news that you've effectively sold your Mum's bungalow.So the good news is that exchange has taken place today & at least my mum’s sale will complete.
Not sure about mine, the executor must go to his bank & request a same day transfer & then I have to go to my bank & request the same. Luckily it is all close together so we have a chance to complete.
thank you @Marcelle123 - it now all depends on how quickly the transfer happens to the executor’s bank account & then how quickly he goes to his bank & requests a same day transfer & I have to do the same.Great news that you've effectively sold your Mum's bungalow.
Hope you're able to buy your own house in time too.
We weren't able to, which is why we're now renting in York and attempting to buy a different house outside York - but we've come to terms with the situation, which may in the end be for the best.
Hope you don't have any unnecessary complications & it all works out fine.
If this continues @Kikki21 don`t hesitate to see your GP. You could have a temperature.I’m really not very well. Last night I would go from totally burning up to shivering under my winter tog duvet. Normally I don’t feel the cold at all. I think all the stress has completely done me in xx
I think this is a good idea.
I think I had a massive temperature but I managed to burn it out of me - I still felt rough the next morning but a few hrs later, I felt much better & been picking up since then. Still not back to full strength yet.
