The sale has been agreed and confirmed in writing but contracts not yet signed. The Agents say this could be about ten weeks.
That is what I believe. I do know that under the EPA my partner can carry on as her Attorney until the time it expires on the death of his mother. However, I wonder what will happen if the contracts have not been signed if she passes on before he can do this. The house was "sold" to raise money for her care fees.
Thank you Clare.
I believe it is in the interest of both Executors of her Will to complete as they have already paid out over £70,000 between them in care fees to date and these are to be reimbursed after the sale, whenever that takes place.
Are you able to give us a brief summary of the ways we could complete prior to the Grant?
