Thanks for your enquiry.
I am sorry to hear of your loss. Could you please let me know if your Grandmother lived in Scotland or England? I trust she lived in Scotland, but please confirm.
Yes, she was living in Scotland
Thank you for your help.
She didn't leave a will.
The only other family is my father, her only child and I am her only grandchild.
The only estate is £45, 000b although I am still owed £19, 450 of that as the solicitor we were using to sell her house for care home fees didn't inform me that I was not libal for her debts so I took it a loan to covert them.
Her house was sold ten days ago and the care home fees paid.
