The answer is no. She lives 20 minutes away.
We all have keys to my late mother's property. Her funeral was yesterday. My concern is that my sister is going through all correspondence, effects etc without any prior discussion with my brother or myself. Can she legally do this? We also wish to close up the property and not incurr any more bills than necessary.
Since your first request for info, I have subsequently had a meeting with my sister and brother regarding this issue.
We are the only beneficiaries and have now agreed to work together in processing our late mother's affairs. The property will now not be occupied on a day to day basis by my sister.
