I was advised by a local Solicitor recently that since 2007 (when the law was changed in the UK) my estate will be tax free up to £650000 .I was married at the time to my wife when she died .Are you American and your speciality is in Conveyancing/Property and maybe not probate/will issues in the Uk ??.Sorry dont mean to be rude but this is important.
Hi Nicola .
By cancelling the question can I have a refund ? Not only did I have to wait a significant time for the first answer well over 4 hours but the answer was not satisfactory. The professional somehow thought I was not married to my wife at the rtime of her death I made it quite clear I was. He has not responded to my followup question when he said he was on line to help.
Makes me think he is not familiar with wills and probate law in the UK. Was not worth £38 I paid .Would rather cancel.
Bad service.I have not got time to wait could go to my local solicitorin the UK.
Mr M J XXXXX
Thank you Clare.
Obviously I got incorrect information first time so thank you .All I wanted was confirmation of what I had been told.
I don't know what "letters of administration".are
My late wife did not leave any will so in UK law at the time the will together with the death certificate goes to Probate in the UK.
I need to know this as I am about to make a new will out
Mr M J Daley
