Joshua, some more questions if I can - let me know if there are more charges for these.
1 - What acknowledgement or confirmation do I need inheritors' receipts of disbursements I make from the estate?
2 - What are the processes for me at the end of Administration of the estate? I am aware of the Inheritance Tax certificate from HMRC, final Tax Return to HMRC and payment of that income tax, transfer the property to me (as sole inheritor by then). Are there any more?
3 - Apparently I can, as Executor, already transfer the flat into my name. Is there any point in doing so, and what would happen if the local Council still has a charge on the property? Do the Council need to agree with any such change? Does your answer to this also apply when I finally change the property into my name (as inheritor rather than Executor), whether or not I have changed it into my name as Executor prior to this.
4 - Given your previous comments at 2:22pm, am I correct that from the agreement date: -
a) - my sister, as well as having no further "interest" in the capital value of the flat from the agreement date, also has no further "interest" in any income from, expenditure of or income tax liability for net income from, the property?
b) - both my sister and I both have an "interest" in any income, expenditure or income tax liability arising after that date?
