Hi, I am Leon, a NSW Solicitor. I will be assisting you with your question. If you choose a telephone call, you will be charged an additional fee.
Is she going to contest the will?
They should distribute the estate if she is not contesting. In QLD challenge a will they have 6 months form the date of probate and if that has passed they are out of time
Yes you can call the court and ask when probate was granted.
The supreme court of QLD.
That is the date that the time starts to run.
If they want to alledg the solicitor that drafted the will was negligent it has nothing to do with the estate. That would be the solicitors insurance that would deal with that.
They cannot expect compensation from the estate.
That is correct.
Unless they have filed to contest the will there is no reason why they solicitor should hold onto the estate.
If you are the executor you have control
All the best and good luck.
