Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further informtaion first.
Is his widow the Executor?
Do you mean she is simply doing nothing whatsoever about the estate?
Was the property owned as Tenants in Common or Beneficial Joint tenants?
What other assets are there?
what does the Will say and why do you think it is wrong?
The property was not in his sole name?
How much are the savings and were they in sole or joint accounts?
Have you asked how the property was transferred into her name?
Even so it could not have happened unless the property was in fact held in joint names or probate had been obtained - what did the solicitor say had happened?
So she obtained Letters of Administration prior to the Caveat being registered?
Did you not check for that before you filed the Caveat?
Do you have evidence of a subsequent Will made after the marriage?
But in fact by then Probate of the subsequent Will had already been granted?
When did you first discover that the LoA had been issued?
Have you taken legal advice on the issue before now?
What is the date of the "new" Will and who is the Executor?
Was the previous Will made before or after his marriage?
