My uncle passed away in sept of last yr, his solicitor is the executive. I am the only family member left, i need to get hold of his solicitor for answers as what is happening to his house. But they are not answering my emails or phone calls! Also a person is saying she his his neice which she isnt. But the solicitor seems to be contacting her and not me!!
JA: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any papers in family court?
Customer: I have tried to contact solicitors but they will not respond to my emails or phone calls.
JA: Family Court normally sits in a local County and Magistrates' Court. Do you know the location of the court? If not, what county do you live in?
Customer: I live in Reading Berkshire, but my uncle lived in Cheadle . Staffordshire.
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: The person that is saying she is the niece as emptied my uncles house and arranged the funeral and seems to control everything.

Hi thank you for your message, I recommend you contact the legal ombudsman to intervene as a matter of urgency, they can be contacted here: https://www.legalombudsman.org.uk/?portfolio=complaint-form-legal

You can also contact the police regarding the supposed niece and the potential probate fraud on the non-emergency 101 number.

I hope this helps, if you can please accept my answer and rate me 5 stars (in the top right of your screen) then Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
