Customer Question

Customer: Hello. My father died on Sunday. His appointed executor is the common-law partner of my younger sister. Because of prior record I do not trust him. I am trying to find out if there is any way a beneficiary can force an independent audit of their activities as executor.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: The man is financially very knowledgeable, but I regard him as slippery and unreliable. My siblings are currently willing to let him perform his appointed role as executor but I have serious suspicions. If I allow things to proceed (i.e. do not lodge a caveat) I want to know that his activities can be audited.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Solicitors generally expect a deposit of about $45 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
