Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
Could you please clarify if the funeral was indeed paid from the Halifax account?
Was the account in joint names of your Mum and sister, or was your sister just authorised to use the account by your Mum?
I take it that the letter you have received is from your sister threatening you with Court action?
I look forward to hearing from you.
hi,it was mums account,sister was just second signature,account was closed and my sister was sent a cheque for 14000,funeral was paid for using some of this money,the rest after any bits and bobs were sorted was to my knowledge put into a nest egg for her boy as agreed,the letter i received yesterday was a claim form from hastings county court wanting a third of funeral costs,thanks lyn
Thanks for clarifying the position.
Well, as the funeral was paid out of your Mother's account (as is the norm), that is the end of the story. You are therefore not liable in law to contribute anything towards the funeral,full stop and your sister does not have any success in pursuing you on the information you have provided me with.
I hope this puts yor mind at rest and assists.
