It is possible that my aunt's friend has POA and is the executor, in that case, can i still ask for a copy of my aunt's will? I don't understand what the appopriate conversation should be with my aunt's friend. I don't want to offend her, as I believe she did give my aunt a lot of care.
I have received a copy of a 'home made' will supposedly written by my aunt in 1997. I've got a bad feeling about it, I think the writing on the will and the writing by my aunts executor on the envelope looks very similar. My aunt has stated, she bequeaths to her friend 'everything that I own'. I don't believe my aunt owned property in London, but that is what the friend told me. Also I don't particularly think my aunt had a lot of money, but she had bad dementia when she died and it's possible she had it when 'she' wrote the will. The friend told me voluntarily on the phone that my aunt lived in disarray for years. The friend told me she appointed herself my aunt's 'next of kin' when she put her in a home. However, she was aware of me and other relatives. It has been signed by my aunt, I think but i wouldn't know for sure, annd witnessed by two neighbours apart from the friend. I think I may take it to my solicitor to look at. What do you think?
where do I leave mt positive rating :) i can't see the option!
