Im not fully sure, I know his brother was not allowed to sign the will.
I know about the C1 form and with legal rights etc as I am at the moment studying for my law degree but I just have no idea where my dad stands in this matter. His brother was given the legal access before my gran died to her bank accounts and we are not sure if all is right regarding them. As far as we know she has not changed her will, is there any way we can find out if my dad is still an executor and was first to sign to make sure? Is he able to request a copy of all bank details and the will? I appreciate the help you are giving me.
Thank you very much, I will get him to contact the solicitor as soon as possible as I fear his brother is going to try and get this all done as quick as possible without any consultation. I am just hoping that he can not do anything without my dads signature.
excellent, thank you very much. You have really put my mind at ease a little.
