Was there any other money in the estate at the time she died?

Expert:  MarianC replied 13 days ago.

Good morning, do you require any further assistance?

Expert:  MarianC replied 12 days ago.

If there is money owed but there is no more money in the estate to repay this then the estate is effectively insolvent and it is no one else's responsibility to pay for it.

Kind regards

Hi Marian
You have taken £50 from my account but I haven’t decided to engage your service. I only enquired and paid £5.
Can you please pay back £50 into my account.
Many thanks

Hello Stella, I do not deal with that side of things, can you please contact Customer Services about the refund.
