Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thank you for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland. The police response will be that this is a civil matter and they won’t interfere. See the solicitor on Monday and get him or her to write to the son in law for an accounting of what was removed from the care home. They should not have done this without reference to the executor. You may want to ask the home why this was allowed to happen. Also remember that if the son in law and his wife had children of their own then those children will have a claim on the estate by representation either under the will or by way of legal rights. Happy to discuss further. In the meantime I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
