No, not yet. The draft agreement states I will pay them within 2 weeks of receiving the signed & witnessed agreements from them.
Thanks Clare. Would you be able to answer some related questions that have come up.
1 - For such a transfer of inheritance rights, would you be able to vet the transfer agreement I have drafted?
2 - Do I need written acknowledgement for inheritors of the money I have disbursed to them, or would evidence of transfer to their account suffice?
3 - Apparently I could, as executor, transfer the flat into my name now. Would there be any point in doing so now, or would it be best to await completion of Will Administration and transfer into my name as inheritor instead?
4 - Are there any other processes at the end of administration other than Inheritance Tax certificate from HMRC, final tax return and payment final disbursement and transfer of the flat to me?
Unfortunately I have to go out now, so will not be able to check for your response until about teatime.
