Yes. We don't know the amount as Treasury solicitors tell us they cannot give us this information.
Phoned and written to treasury solicitors explaining situation and requesting details of amount so that family can take court action ie in small claims court or wherever. After initial refusal to disclose, - wrote again asking them to reconsider in circumstances. Treasury solicitors replied matter would be referred to higher level. Weeks have gone by, he's phoned again but no decision, nobody will dicuss or give info on how long a decision will take. Just brick wall !
Prior to contacting treasury solicitors, representative phoned administrator and wrote to him enclosing signed authorities from 6 heirs to deal with him on our behalf. He requsted details of the estate and progress of the administration. No response.
Thank you Clare. Links were very helpful.
