Sorry couldnt find your answer earlier. 1. In original will my husband was executor. After he died his family asked me to place it in their hands. I have a letter from their solicitor confirming that and also i am mentioned as a benaficiary.
2 I do not have a copy of the will but may be able to get one.
3As there are two sides of the family involved, it is the home my mother-in-law shared with her sister, who is also deceased some 4 years. The proceeds of the sale to be shared between both families , then divided equally between, in my case, 6.
In the meantime they have rented the home out and say they are using the income to pay for repairs. I am on a pension and would like to access what is due to me.
Yes we were married. As executor of my husbands will the family members had to get my written consent to their application.. I am mentioned as benificiary
I know it is probably not an issue but the family promised my husband before he died that they would make sure I recieved his share. Which I believe is the situation in any case.
I dont think so. George, my husband was named as executor and it was to share proceeds. We all agreed to leave it until his aunt passed away, and in the meantime he died.
Sorry I think you may have misunderstood. The house was left to all siblings and cousins to share. Dont think anyone has ownership.
