Hi, thanks for your enquiry. Could you give me a little more information, please? I take it that there has been a delay in distributing the Estate funds/has the Executor given a recent update? Al
Hi, thanks for your reply. To be honest, I am not aware any "statutory period". Provided Probate has been issued, I am not aware of any Banks/B Societies demanding that an account remain open. If a Bond has not reached maturity, the Bank/ B Society will allow the Bond to remain open if this is what the Executors want, but otherwise, the Bond can be closed. If you wish to give me with which Bank/B Society the Bonds are held, I can look into it further for you? Kind Regards Al
