Ten years ago my sister advanced money to my then Australian partner for rehab. to help him after he suffered a stroke. He could not talk or walk properly. The Loan Agt. was drawn up by her solicitor, witnessed, etc. The loan was payable after his death. Sadly, he has now died but I have received an email from her brother-in-law wondering if it could be "statute barred". It is upsetting to think that his family in Australia would now rather try and find a way of not repaying this loan. Especially as my sister did this out of love and kindness and only tried to help him have a better life than the one he was left with. I am asking the question on behalf of my sister as she has been very ill now for a year. Hope you can help.
