The solicitor was one executor they are Mr Geddes of Irving Geddes in Crieff he charged us £10,000 on an estate of approx £350,000. He was also very keen to sell the cottage which in a conservation village, he sent round a couple to view it while we were clearing it out into a skip.
The other executor was my youngest,and least experienced , brother who had also not seen his father for almost 18 years, and had received terrible treatment and neglect by his father.We think he was chosen because he would not go against any decision by the solicitor.
We have now sold the yacht to a local cabinet maker from Oban called Derek McLean the boat is at Crinan Argyll.
We thought he had settled all outstanding debts including the boat, and he handed us the paperwork for us to sell the boat and mooring, not telling that it was illegal for us or anyone to sell it. They evidently sell it and pass the money on to you. All moorings come under the Crown Estate and if you miss two payments you lose your mooring. I think they tried hard to find us but as I said the marina and solicitors did not send them our address although they were both writing to us at our Chester address.
