Thanks for your question. I assume your mother is due to inherit from her brother’s estate. If that is the case and your mother has a bank account then the money from the sale can be paid there. That leaves the question of who controls the bank account and whether a guardian may have to be appointed for your mother by the court, presumably you. Your mother cannot appoint a power of attorney now, I presume. Let me know a bit more and I’ll be happy to help further.
Thanks for your reply. That being the case she will inherit as will the children of any predeceasing siblings. If there is to be a substantial inheritance it could affect her current circumstances and a guardian may have to be appointed by the sheriff.
If you have access then that would be fine and a guardian may not be necessary.
