The codicil was rewritten via a solicitor without consultation to the benificaries. We have not had sight of this as yet. The codicil sites my step brother in law as a trustee which was never my dad's wishes and was said it could be interpreted as such but was not a written intention.
My Dad never said this to me despite being very clear about other things in his will to me. My step brother in law was sited as an executor and nothing else. My dad was in sound mind right up to the end. He was terrified of being place in an old peoples home and did not want others to access to his accounts. He expressed this to me on serveral occasions.
We have written to them both my brother and I over two weeks ago with no response.
hi sorry if I was not clear. my Dad wrote a codicil before his death this was re written after his death via instruction of the executors without consultation of the benificaries. this codicil changed things making my step brother in law a trustee which was not in the codicil. I raised this with the executor who told me that they had decided not to consult us. I said I was not happy and was told it was done basically there I would cause delay affecting my step mum
as yet have not seen a copy and only know that Gordon was made a trustee it was agreed by head executive this was a wide interpretation of my dad,s wording in the codicil. I knew he was to be an executive but never a trustee dad was very clear to me right up to his death who his trustees were to be.
Thank you my brother and I realise we need to see a solicitor if all else fails
