How much £ has he left in assets and savings and house?
I am offline shortly till later
no one currently lives in the house. He lived alone
House is probably around 90 - 100 K £
He only died 3wks ago
House not rented, but would be 4 - 500£ to rent.
He has a car which is probably worth about £1500.00
son unsure what other assets he has ( amount ,if any savings/shares)
His assets are split equally then between all children.
Do they all want the house rented?
None of the children wants the house as they live in other parts of the country.
the children are fearful the house could be reposed if the morgage is not paid.
They do not know if the house had insurance attatched to the loan. They are still looking to find out who the lenders are.
will his estate have to go to probate as there is no will. How long could this take?
There are also outstanding utilitie bills. What should they do?
Is it advisabsle to get a solicitor?
I am trying to keep a low profile with the family affairs, but 2nd child who has had to take on the resposibility is at his wits end in what he has to do and has requested my support. I am merely here in a supportive capacity. Their mother has also asked me to give as much support as posible as she is disabled and not able to do so.
Will pass on some of the information.
