Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will try to assit.
In order to provide you with the most accurate answer, I may have to ask you a lot of questions. This may seem tedious and irrelevant, but trust me, there is a reason for every question. So please be patient throughout the process and if it takes a little long for me to come back to you, it is probably because I am researching your answer. I hope that is okay.
1. Was the payment made to her by your father whilst he was still alive?
2. Am I correct in saying that there is no agreement that you can prove that obligates her to pay back the money? For all intents and purposes, it looks like a gift?
3. Does the will says she must get a car, or does the will say she must get that car?
1. Yes, he was still alive.
2. Yes, you are correct, there is no agreement that obligates her to pay it back. However the bank statement says/suggests it was to pay for her liquidation.
3. It says she must get a car, but she chose that car at the reading of the will, as it was in the best condition.
With regards ***** ***** funeral policy, shouldn't she have to pay for the funeral out of the money she got from cashing in the policy? Even though she claims she could have done it cheaper, which is not true.
It says "A car in my name".
Yes, that is the vehicle she chose.
The payments are coming out of the CC to his personal bank account and then gets paid from there. So no it is not a part of his remuneration.
Yes, he was the only member of the CC.
Yes, it's in his name.
I hope I have answered all of your questions and addressed all your concerns, but if you have follow up questions before you rate, feel free to ask them at no extra cost. If you are satisfied with the service, kindly rate it positively.
Thank you very much for all of your assistance. It has been most helpful.
Thanks for your help but I do have two more questions:
My Dad's will said his partner could take any furniture she 'benodigs/requires', which she has already done.
1. There are 2 valuable paintings my Dad bought through the CC that she is claiming were gifted to her. I know this is not true. Does she have a claim to them? Surely this is considered decor and not furniture and belongs to the CC as it was bought through the company.
2. She took a bed when she came to fetch her belongings, and now also claims she wants the marital bed, which also happens to be a fixture in the house as it is made of sleeper wood. Is she entitled to the bed if she has already taken everything she 'requires'?
Sorry for the late thanks.
Thanks again for all your help.
