If, as an executor of my father estate along side my sister, we both obtain a Grant of Probate, will be both have to deal with organisations such as banks (i.e. requiring two signatures) or can just one of us deal with the bank?

I did not get an answer but was asked an open question.

 

Hello there,

 

Thanks for your enquiry.

 

If both of you apply for Probate, then to enable any accounts to be closed, the withdrawal forms will need to be signed by both of you.

 

It is perfectly ok for one of you to write to the Banks etc on behalf of both of you, but the appropriate forms will need both signatures.

 

I hope this answers your question, and if so, I would be grateful if you could leave positive feedback.

 

Kind Regards

AL
