I am a solicitor in a Scotland and will help you with this. Why does he not want the money?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
he does not trust me with is bank details and when i have asked for his address to send cheque he has not replied. he hasn't spoken to me since the death of my other aunt 4yrs ago andthat was a shouting match in cowdenbeath high street
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
he has also in 2012 threatened my with solicitors .here is his emailI'm giving you 7 working days from the 22/10/12 to provide details of rays will and all costs and money leaving ray estate and any costs will be recovered from your side of things and after 30/10/12. to try and do people out of money is a crime offence. and will be treated as such.
i replied with asking for his bank details .. i have have for them about 6 times since then
Expert:  JGM replied 3 months ago.

You can do one of two things: 1. Leave the money in a separate bank account and tell him when he is ready to take the money you will transfer it. Or 2. Tell him if he doesn't provide details where the money can be sent you will send it to the QLTR office in Edinburgh where all money goes in respect of beneficiaries who can't be traced. He would then have to go through a tortuous procedure to reclaim the money from the state. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time. See QLTR.gov.uk

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Can you confirm if there is a time limit (and if so what) for him to claim it back from a separate account I would hold or QLTR? Also, if there is a time limit and he misses it, what would happen to the inheritance. Would it revert to myself or the state?
Expert:  JGM replied 3 months ago.

There is no time limit on QLTR. There is a 20 year time limit otherwise. Thereafter the legacy would revert to the estate.
