Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
I am sorry for your loss.
How much are in the account?Are you saying the bank will not allow you to withdraw the money?
What has the bank said?Does your son have a spouse or children?
Does your son have a spouse or children?
What you should do is to make an appointment with the bank manager.
Tell the manager that you have received legal information from a lawyer who has said it makes no sense to apply to administer the estate and that the amount of money is the bank is very small and that no bank would require you to administer the estate based on these facts.
You can say that your son has no spouse or children so you and your spouse are the heirs.
Say that the lawyer said that the way this is done is for you both to sign an indemnification agreement that states that if someone goes after the bank for releasing the money you will be liable instead of the bank.
The bank manager will then likely agree to release the funds.
Does that help as a starting point?
