Hi Clare, the gist of the message:
"Dear Mrs Watkins-Smith
About the estate of Elaine Smith
Thank you for sending us details of the estate of Elaine Smith.
I am writing to tell you that Elaine Smith may have been paid too much income related benefit.
We have asked the office that paid the benefits to send the relevant documents to us. We will write to you again when we receive these documents.
We strongly advise you not to distribute the estate.
If the estate is distributed the executor may be held personally responsible for any claim."
Subsequently, Deborah has received a letter or letters from DWP none of which have been passed to me despite repeated requests from me.
I phoned DWP and was informed that they wanted details of assets held by Elaine on 26 Oct2006, I obtained bank statements that included the specified date and on 05/04/16 sent them to DWP by post and to Deborah Watkins-Smith by email.
