I am a solicitor in Scotland. The terms and conditions of the bank account have to be examined. If the banks conditions provide for the funds to go to the survivor then there could be no legal rights claim. If it is otherwise then one half of the account should be available to the legal rights fund. Happy to discuss further. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.

I am sorry I couldn't call earlier. I teach law at one of the universities on a Monday evening. I can call you now or tomorrow if that helps.
