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
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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
