My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
Have you obtained Letters of Administration?
What is your concern with the actions of the law firm?
It would be easier if you could give me an outline first
I am afraid that it is only the Estate that can make the claim - no one else
Also so far as your brother's part of the claim is concerned the Solicitor was correct - they cannot be dealt with separately - although I suspect it is a very slender claim at best.
It is also true that your brother had a potential claim on the estate - but again not a major one
You are right to have concerns about any falsehoods told by your siblings.
You should write to the solicitors detailing these clearly and remind them that they are under a duty to the court to address the issues
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
It would be unwise to refuse to sign as it is against the interests of the estate and could be a cause for you being removed as Executor
You are free to complain to the Ombudsman although it would be better to wait until matters are concluded
If you are asked to sign paperwork that says it is a "statement of truth" then yes you can refuse to sign
It would be unwise to do that
For the same reason as given above
it is against the interests of the estate and could be a cause for you being removed as Executor
I am sorry that you feel my service was bad, and that I was not able to give you the answer that you wished, but unless you withdraw as an Executor then you do have to be careful about your actions
