I have no proof but it was £13000. it was to help towards solicitors, windows carpets etc
Ihave been asked to look at this for you.
So where does the figure of £13k come from?
Youwill be entitled to get this from the estate.
Isyour sister disputing that this money is owed?
Howmany beneficiaries are there?
I think it came from my bank account, my sister is not disputing it but as she has power of attorney she said i need something from a solicitor. As my mother is alive she is the beneficiary.
Who is selling the property?
Does mother agree and is she mentally capable?
Do you have proof from the bank statemnt?
What does she want from the solicitor exactly?
My Mums selling the property as she is in a care home and needs the funds to pay for it. She is mentally capable, I dont have proof from a bank statement, and my sister said the solicitor said I need something legal
I am really struggling here,so it's not surprising that you are struggling too.
I cannot think what yoursister wants from your solicitor.
For a moment, let me assumethat your sister does not at all mind giving you the £13,000 which could be thecase.
There is a potential problemthat any money which is out of the norm given to you, either by your mother orby your sister would be subject to being subject to care fees (if all the othermoney was spent apart from your mother's last £23,000) unless you can provethat this was a genuine debt and not a simple transfer to you, of money, toavoid it going towards care fees.
It might be worth asking if thatis what the solicitor wants the proof for. If it is not that, and I can tellyou that there is no reason why, if your sister believes that you are owed thismoney, she cannot simply let you have it.
However, your mother ismentally capable and all your mother needs to say to your sister is "pay her£13,000 because we owe it to her in respect of X Y and Z". Try to have someoneelse in the care home present at the time who can vouch to what your mothersaid to prevent any problems with the council later.
