This is an email from attorneys in Brussels regarding my decased brother and his predeceased wife.
Concern : SUSSKIND / GOLDBERG
M. Réf : MK / 13212
I write to you directly in quality of Mr Amos and Mrs Noah and Michele Süsskind’s lawyer, as far as you have confirmed to me that you don’t have a lawyer anymore (Me Philippe Markiewicz whom I called indicates me that he personally knows the Süsskind family, so that he can, if necessary, intervene as conciliator, but could not assure your defense against my clients).
Your notary, Me Matthieu Derynck wrote to me that he had confirmed to you that the apparment of Forest in which Mrs Monique Süsskind and your brother lived is Mrs Monique Süsskind’s sole property. Therefore, you don’t have any rights on this property.
However, as written to your previous lawyer, Me Menschaert, on February 5th, 2013, despite many requests, you still repossessed the furniture which are still in the apartment (either your brother’s personal belongings or Mrs Süsskind and your brother’s in common furniture that your brother has inherited after his wife’s death).
It is obvious that you clearly gave up making an inventory of those belongings.
My clients wish to repossess the apartment, which is impossible as long as you leave your inherited furniture.
Would you, as soon as possible and in any case for the end of this week, either confirm to me that you refute the ownership of the above-mentioned furniture or make arrangements to pick them up by June 8th last deadline ?
I have to bring your attention to the fact that as long as you don’t release the apartment, my client could demand a compensation of occupation from you since your brother’s death on November 18th, 2012.
On basis of a rental value estimated at €1.250, my clients could thus demand you an amount of €7.916,70 (until May 29th, 2013) increased by €41,67 per day of delay to release the place.
I have to insist so that you take a stand extremely quickly regarding this matter.
On the other hand, you will find one more time in appendix a copy of the total amount of the common charges stopped on September 20th, 2012, before the death of your brother.
These charges which constituted your brother and his wife’s common debt for the previous period of Mrs Süsskind’s death then your brother’s debt as far as he had the usufruct of the building until his death, thus falls to you completely.
It is about a main amount of €3.626,49.
These accommodation charges have to be paid directly to the account of the co-ownership nr BE15 3101 3574 5930. Afterwards, I would appreciate that you send me the proof of payment.
More over, my clients would like to know about the situation of the apartment in Israel as well as bank accounts and other liquid assets for which the Israeli law could apply : as a matter of fact, if I am not mistaken, according to the Isaeli law, my clients could claim a third part of the succession of the Israel real property and the movables, in this included the accounts and other “immaterial movables”.
I thank you for indicating to me if you have hired a possible solicitor in Israel to take care of the liquidation of your sister-in-law’s succession and if necessary to communicate me the copy of one or several declarations of succession which have eventually been written, ideally translated in English.
As Me Markiewicz is prepared to serve as intermediary with the aim of a negotiated solution that my clients would privilege, as you would, I suppose, I will send him a copy of this letter.
