Thank you for the reply.
Not sure if she was a tax payer. Never found any correspondence relating to tax. However, just checked tax allowance for 2012/13 for person over 75 (she was 87), appears to have been £10,660.
Checking her last few bank statements she appears to have income totalling £1,572.13 per month. (pension from DWP and a works pension).
total £18865.56. I assume any income tax has been paid at source.
I've done some more internet searching and believe there is a C1 and C5 form to fill out at the Sheriff court.
Figures I have so far
Gross value £11,480.33
less funeral and other expenses £3772.87
net value £7,700.43
which would mean no inheritance tax.
I take I will have to attend Sheriff court to have figures checked and submit forms. Or have I missed something?
That is brilliant news!
Any possible comeback due to not completing C1 and C5 forms?
Will doesn't need to be lodged or registered with court or anywhere else?
Not worried re- further claiments turning up. She was definitely childless and relationship with mother-in-law is excellent.
