she has no property - about 5000 pound in her bank account (barclays) also a savings bond with the same bank for about 13000 pounds - she has left a a list of who she wants to leave what to - and all remaining money left once expenses etc have been taken care of to go her sister - it all very clear what she wanted and i hoping it wll be as simple to for fill.

Unless the bank insist this can be dealt with as a small estate.

 

Go into bank with yr passport, yr driving licence, yr utility bill (any) and the will and they should give you a form to have sworn bya solicitor £5) stating that you have the authority to deal with the proceeds.

 

It is then for you to distribute the assets.

 

It is an offence not to do it in accordance with the will or say you have the authority if you dont. The excutor does have the authority.

 

Please press accept and I will clarify any points. The question will not close. Thanks
