My bological father died when I was very young.My mother remarried later in life.
As to why the solicitors are named on the will.When I asked that question I was given the the same answer as the question reguarding the deeds "it must have been mums instructions.
I can find no written evidence for or against those answers.However I have found a letter from the solicitors to my mum.In this they answer a question mum has asked (why is my name is ***** ***** the deeds but thiers is?)Their reply ( it was held in trust for me).
The Land Registry title document is dated 21/01/2008,after my stepfather had died.Listed as proprietor my mum & the solicitor.There is a Restriction on the deeds that no single proprietor can dispose of the estate
My stepfather died 08/06/07.
Both my mother & step fathers will are dated 05/02/07.
I hope this is of help,
Your answer is what I had expected.They have acted as they should have legally speaking.
But from my point of view..........I feel the situation is not "just",more so when I have to pay to get back to where I thought I was at the start of the process.
That said the whole process is a learning experience for me.
Thank you again,
