Is your sister refusing to let you see these bank accounts?
Have you reported this to the police? Would you be willing to do so?
You can always ask for the bank statements, but an executor is not under any duty to provide them either to a beneficiary or anyone else. You can always apply to court for a court order for pre-action disclosure if she is unwilling to let you have them. In circumstances like this, my advice to an executor would be to be as open and transparent as possible to prevent suspicion that something untoward has gone on.
If you think something untoward has gone on, I suggest that you write to the solicitor dealing with this and share your concerns because if some money has gone astray, the solicitor will want to know about it. He won’t want staff who have spirited money away or appear to have done.
Can I clarify anything else for you?
