Hi again. I'm just going through scenarios as above before we pursue this matter.
What if the landlord states that my brother should have been paying him rent to look after these machines as the the agreement was just verbal.
Obviously my brother isn't here to fight his corner, this landlord could really say anything - my brother gave the machines to him etc...This landlord knew how ill my brother was and I feel the landlord really took advantage but it was coming up to 4 years that these machines had been on his premises.
We have no record of anything, but this landlord have admitted to my mum and dad that he sold them for £500 because he had enough of them being in the way. He gave my mum and dad this money last week after my uncle challenged one of the landlord's employees asking questions about these machines. The landlord went to see my mum and dad the next morning.
My dad thinks it is a total waste of time trying to do anything as we have no proof, only that all my brothers family and friends knew these machines were there.
If we manage to retrieve money for the machines, can we use this to help pay off his mortgage in order for his partner and children to live there.
Will the mortgage company allow us to keep the mortgage going for his partner and children to carry on living there (if you can remember previous messages regarding the house)
His partner - his ex at the time was staying with her mum at the time of his death but would now like to carry on paying the mortgage in order to leave this property to their children eventually.
Thanks for all your help
