Hi, thanks for your question, I will assist you with this. Was the solicitor in the UK or abroad?
Hi the house is in jamaica I was notified by the solicitor during the funeral wake he told me as my father had re married it was written in the will his current wife live her life out in the property then it becomes mine upon her death. I never received anything in writing just given contact numbers and assured that anything I needed answered would be done upon calling the solicitor who has now passed away. A few years before my father passed he took me to a bank in Jamaica and got me to sign some forms but did not explain what they were to me.
Thank you I will contact his wife and see if she can help any further. Would you have any idea of the cost to instruct a solicitor to perform the relavent searches for me. I'm guessing I would need some paper work specifically stating my name as my father us not on my birth certificate either so proof of relation may also be hard to do without a will I'm guessing
