Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland. I can see what the solicitor was trying to do but really you are owed a debt from your mother in law’s estate and if the eldest brother as executor of the estate agrees that it is a debt then there should be no issue with you being paid from the estate once it is in funds. If there is a problem then you should get your own solicitor to sue the executor and place an inhibition on the estate to halt the sale. I hope that helps.
