Hello, I am Law Denning and I am a practising solicitor in a High Street practice. I have been an expert on this website in UK law since 2008. During that time, as you appreciate, I have answered thousands of questions from satisfied users on a variety of subjects. Because we are all in practice with clients and court and other users, I might not always respond in minutes, particularly evenings and weekends. Please bear with me in that caseIt is my pleasure to try and assist you with this today. Please bear with mewhile I gather some further information from you in order for me to be able toadvise you fully.Unless I have all the facts that I need, my answer would not be accurate. What is the value of the estate?
The last bank statement I saw has 20,000 pounds and that was about 3 years ago, she lives in a council house
Can you please explain what has happened? I need you to explain this statement that you make tke her name off her back accounts and replaces it with his own name
as it means nothing to me without knowing the background. I need as much detail as you have please. I am off-line shortly till tomorrow will pick this up then at some stage as I will be online and off-line all weekend. Thank you
yes I have
So whatexactly does the will say and what is your query?Do you mean that the executor has changed the name on the deceased bank accounts to the executors name? Why do you ask?
Who is the executor?
It is not uncommon for the deceased's money to be placed into an account (and indeed is quite normal) in the name of the executor acting on behalf of the estate .
It depends if there are any other problems surrounding this .
My grandmother is still alive, her pastor iis the executor of her will and he is very quiet about everything and is telling us that she has no money. She has a private pension account and the family asked to see a bank statement ....He sent a bank statement with his and address name only there is no sign of my grandmothers name on it. M mother wants to travel to England to see her mother and we need a bank statement and letter from him on behalf of my grandma as she is registered blind. He refuses to send it. I think he is up to no good.
So, where is all this takingplace?
Is it a statement from a new account? Did you tell him why you need it? Is it for proof of ID and residence?
What relevance is the will if she is still alive? We need full background please.
I'm living in Jamaica he is in England. She wants myself and her daughter to come to England and we need the bank statement for the consulate. The will is now no where to be found in the house as my sister visited her and its gone. He refuses to send the bank statement even after he spoke to him about it.....Everthing seems hidden and very shady.
She can easily do anotherwell assuming of course that she is mentally competent and knows what she isdoing.
So does your grandmother livein England?
It would be most unusual forthe consulate to ask specifically for a bank statement. What have they askedfor and why?
