Thank you for your question.
Did your father leave any estate that you are aware of?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
he sold his cottage months before he went into sheltered accom,and then into the poppyhome,so I would say yes in 2009 along with accompanying to solicitors for will he also handed his bank details to me in case he got too infirm to deal with them,I have never taken over it, as he entered the poppyhome, approx,price on cottage sale £120.000
Expert:  JGM replied 1 year ago.
You should see the solicitor who made the will. I presume you were appointed executor. Contact should be made with the bank to ascertain what is in the account and also you have to find out what money the care home are holding or may be due back to the estate. Your first port of call should be the solicitor.
I hope that helps. Happy to discuss further.
