My premises was vandalised by a juvenile aged 15 and the incident was witnessed and the youth found to be 'amenable' and subject to a JLO. I want to be compensated for the approx €500 cost of the repairs to the criminal damage.
Six months on, we haven't has as much as an apology and very little help from the garda.
Our insurance costs will rocket if we claim there, so can I insist on having the case prosecuted in the courts if the youth & his family choose to continue to ignore the damage he caused?
Hi, similar question to one you've answered please. I am a co executor of my fathers estate. There is plenty of money to pay bills etc., his house is being left to me and the money between my brothers. My brother (Co-executor) is not happy as feels it is unfair (the will that is) and has not handled any of the work of an executor up to now, I have handled everything via my fathers solicitor and and is at the point to finalise things but the solicitor is asking if he wishes to renounce his role but he will not communicate with the solicitor. My problem here is the same solicitor is mine, my fathers and my brothers. My other brothers are happy with the contents of the will but not my brother the co-executor. Before is ask OUR solicitor, I'm looking for an impartial opinion, if he will not cooperate what is the easiest option to progress things? thanks
