Thank you for your question

My name is Clare

I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first

Could you explain a little more about the background please - has probate of the Will been granted?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
As far as I know, no. My daughter died July 24th 2016. She married Nov 2015, previous marriage dissolved, as far as I know, all bank accounts, mortgage were in her maiden name. However, since her death, her present husband has paid all the funeral expenses, paid a lump sum payment to her 2 grandchildren, and is now saying her accounts were in the ' red' and he can't pay the mortgages
