Dear Clare, thank you for you answer. I am an Executor of a Will together with a solicitor, who insists we do not show the Will to anyone.
The Will was drafted by him for my friend who just passed. Her relatives are anxious to see it. The main beneficiary of the Will is me, but my friend drafted a lot of Wills during the past 20 years, and i believe that mine is the last one. Obviously, the relatives insist their's is the last Will. So without showing the Will to them, how can I prove it?
Also, there will be most certainly no Probate, as all she has left is about £11,000 in the Lloyd's bank, and it's threshold is £25,000.
Can I go against the will of second Executor (the solicitor) and show the Will to the interested parties?
Dear Clare, I am on my way to London now so will be in touch later. Hope will be able to see the reply on my mobile.
On mine its November 2012, the ones the other people have i dont have at hand, but they should be earlier. The closest to mine could be spring 2012.
I would not like them to think i am doing something unlawful. Like keeping the inheritance that they think was meant for them. The problem is they r all abroad and r distant relatives. My friend had no immediate family.
I don't know.
I am Executor, same as the solicitor, guess we have equal rights.
Thank you very much. :-)
I have a new question, please. How can I stop second Executor acting as he wishes without consulting with me first?
