To follow up on the above question. My brother has possession of the will and is the executor. He is a signature on her bank account. Her assets are money in the bank. I know I am in the will. What is the law regarding her will, if my brother decides to bury it what are my options.? How long does it normally take for a will to be executed ? She died in hospital in South Devon at the age of 97. Thanks, ***** *****
My mother died about 3 weeks ago and her total asset was money in the bank.
My brother is in possession of my mother`s will. Is there any oversight by the legal system? He is a signature on her bank account so the bank account could be decimated. Is her will in the public domain? If monies are taken out of the bank account after her death is that admissible? How can I protect my interests?
