My brother has recently passed away, and I as an executor, have been dealing with his affairs, regarding his funeral and estate.
The family have employed a company, Cogent Law to deal with his estate and do his grant of probate.
The company have recently sent me all the figures that they say " have accurately been gathered" and asked me to review them, and agree to their findings, which I did...These figures were all on their headed company paper, as well as the Inland Revenue tax form.
After reviewing the information, and sending my approval back to Cogent Law, they have come back to me saying they have "inadvertently made an error in their calculations" to the tune of £31,000!
Please can you give me my legal position on this?
So to reiterate the position, are you saying that the company are obliged to settle this mistake?
