My mother died in March 2014. She left me £2,000 in her will.

Customer Question

My mother died in March 2014. She left me £2,000 in her will. I have only just received a cheque for that amount. Can I ask for interest for the period I had to wait?

Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.

My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.

The Executors are personally liable to you for administering the Estate correctly and meeting all the bequests from the assets available to the estate.

Once a year has passed since your mothers death you are entitled to interest on the bequest at 8% per annum.

I hope that this is of assistance, but please ask if I can be of any more assistance.

Kind Regards
