Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello! My name is Debra (formerly known as Legal Ease). Thank you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
I am sorry for your loss but I don't understand the facts.
If you are executor and beneficiary are you asking if the co-executor can give your personal information to the beneficiaries?And what personal information was given out exactly?
I am sorry. I've read the posts and read them again and again. So many words are missing in the sentences I just don't understand what happened.
Please start again and explain what happened but with all the words included in the sentence and as little typos as possible.Then also explain a few more things. Was your grandmother competent. If not were you appointed under a Power of Attorney?
Was the information given about about your grandmother or about you?
They did not have to give out the information about your own personal bank accounts. If they did this it is a serious mistake on their part and if this was on purpose it is shocking.
They did have to disclose anything about your grandfather's accounts if your grandmother instructed this. So that would include joint accounts.
If this was your own personal accounts then you can sue them for damages if you incurred any and you can also file a complaint with the privacy commissioner and there will be an investigation.
Does that help as a starting point?Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
In Ontario the limitation period is 2 years which means he has to sue in two years. But it doesn't start to run until the claim was discovered.
So he can sue you for up to two years from the time he learned of the cheques.
The bot***** *****ne here is that anyone who is a Trustee owes the beneficiaries a duty of care and that does include confidentiality.
And if your grandmother was mentally competent she was free do do what she wants with her own money of course.
I don't know if I am answering fully as again I don't understand part of what you are saying with all these words missing from sentences and with the typos.
Is there anything more I can help you with at this point in time?
Again I've read your post many times. I don't understand what you are saying.
Please try again without missing words and without typos.
