I am being defrauded out of my inheritance in my mothers will.
I was left £10,000 in the will from my mother.
My half sister is an executor of the will.
There is a property in the will and the will states that it remain part of the estate until all debts and bequests have been settled.
Probate was granted to my half sister in 2006.
My half sister has not paid out the £10,000 to date. She has moved the property in the will into her name and taken a mortgage out on it and still not paid my bequest. I believe that is fraud as the house remains part of the estate until I have received my bequest?
My sister has been renting the property out and has taken in over £12,000 in the last two years alone and still says there is not money in the estate account to pay my bequest.
She will not let me see the estate account. I believe she is committing fraud by obtaining the mortgage and from obtaining legal possession of the property in her name when she has not disclosed that it is still part of the estate. Could you please advise me?
So do you agree that
1) She should not have been able to put the house in her own name until the bequests were fulfilled?
2) She has committed fraud to get the house in her name?
3) She has fraudulently obtained a mortgage on the property as there are outstanding bequests?
4) That there should be an Estate account that I have the right to see?
5) That rent monies should have been put into the estate account?
She is being very slippery and dishonest over everything and this has gone on for 8 years now.
She has been renting the place and obtaining money for herself and keeps saying there is not enough to pay me when it is known from the Estate agent in charge of the rental that there has been more than £12,000 in rental monies paid out.
Could also help me as to what offence I should report her to the police for? Would it be probate fraud?
Thank you for helping me.
Thank you the will states that the property is to be placed in trust and it states it should be sold and held in trust and the residue of her will estate should be used to
01 Pay any debts funeral and testamentary expenses.
02 Satisfy all gifts of specified property referred to in my will.
03 Pay all the gifts of money referred to in my will
04 Deal with the Residuary Estate as I now direct.
section 8 of the will. Gift of residue
She gives the residue of the estate to my half sister.
Under money bequests my mother writes
02 I give to my son RSM free of all taxes and death duties the sum of Ten Thousand Pounds.
My half sister was not left the house it states that it should be sold and put into Trust. But, that she would get the residuary of the estate after everything is paid out.
Does that help at all??? Thank you so much.
Thank you so much I really do appreciate your work. Best wishes and sleep well.
Thank you so much for your time. It confirms what I have been thinking about fraud. She has been renting the property and taken money in so could have paid me. She has a mortgage on the property so could have paid me from the mortgage. She is doing everything she can to not pay but has done it fraudulently. It is wrong that someone can do this when they have sworn an oath at probate to do things properly. Thank you again for your help you have been most kind.
