My mother died August 15, I wrote to solicitors acting on behalf

Customer Question

My mother died August 15, I wrote to solicitors acting on behalf of beneficiary, and asked for file notes, and outstanding debt, for car that was paid by me, to be repaid. This was verbal and would be funded from house sale. I asked that this matter be dealt with before probate. Solicitor regecting claim, all assets to my sister, excluding her other two children. As online will made less than a year before her death due to overuse of alcohol, I wanted file notes, to decide if to contest. No written reply from solicitors firm, but verbally told, probate granted and house on market.
Where do I go from here? As you can tell, I have no relationship with sister, and as my sister knows, this goes against what we all knew. Before,mums mental capacity was in question, when it became clear, life expectancy short.
I live in England, but had regular contact will mum.
I have doubts re firm involved, as no acknowledgement, and resistant.
