DWP have sent me final demand otherwise they will make assessment on overpayments. I sent them all her bank account details and they are questioning the large amounts transferred into her account.
I have only just received this income info from the estate wind up solicitor, but wondering if I am giving DWP too much information
A few more questions:
I have disbursed some of the funds to my siblings (30K each) and held back 30K for the DWP. The info I have is a letter headed statement of interim estate accounts dated to April 2010, and from Shoosmiths of Northampton who are very high cost so I don't want to use them again.
Would another solicitor be as good to use ?
DWP gave me a deadline to get back by the 14th Dec, would it be better if a solicitor or myself requests an extension to this ?.
Wouldn,t a tax advisor be as good as a solictor ?
As long as a solicitor has the relevant documentation you don't need to use the expensive one you used previously.As I said in my previous post, a solicitor's letter will carry more weight with the DWP.If you have an accountant or tax adviser, they could deal with it but, however you do it, the DWP will need to see the documentation. As long as you keep them informed, they should give you some time to sort the documentation out
