No i did not agree. My sister tells me that the solicitor who was appointed has mis appropriated mums funds so probably not a bad thing. the deeds still show mum and i as owners with charge from solicitor.He also did not pay bill of my mothers (she was buying a smaller place before she had the stroke)and the solicitor wanted his costs. a week after my mums death they also put a charge on the property (against her). Mum did not leave a will. She had several pensions that were being administered by the person looking after her finances (the solicitor appointed by the court).We have no idea whats left.
btw if you are having trouble with the request and cannot respond i can try someone else. id really like to resolve tonight if possible
thank you. I'm guessing that we can also ask the solicitor appointed by the court of protection for all costs levied during his time looking after my mothers finances. Is this correct? I also wondered what rights my brother has living in the house as he does and has done for many years.
Thank you so much. just two final questions, sorry . if i can get the death certificate what do i need to do to act as admin? the only person who has mums details is the solicitor appointed by the court and we are not happy with him.
in addition we had instigated a legal claim against the hospital that was negligent with mums care. what will happen there now she has passed?
hi have you signed off?
Thanks can you answer the question re what i need to do to act as administrator? do i need to file this with anyone such as a court? do i need a solicitor?
To obtain information you just need to write to the organisation or person you require information from and identify who you are and that you are acting as your mothers administrator and include a death certificate and then ask for the information you require. Ask for the certificate back so you don't have to keep getting more.To apply for probate you have to collate valuations for all your mothers assets and then contact the local probable registry and arrange for a probate interview. Many people prefer to use a solicitor but you can do the job without one if you wish. Using a solicitor avoids the need for a probate interview as everything is done through the solicitor instead
