Executor and Beneficiary

Morning All

My younger brother passed away on 15/01/2021 and l was made an Executor along with another brother, l am also a Beneficiary re my brother's estate ( there is no will ) a bank account has been set up by the other Executor and money has been deposited into this account, there is still monies to come from various people.

Now the problem l have when l contact the other executor for details re copy of latest bank account he refuses to submit one to me, l believe this is the wrong l should be kept up to date on this matter.

Is there anyone out there who could help me with this as l don't want to get involved with a solicitor as this would cost me money which l don't have.

Many thanks John

Re this beneficiary thing, l have sent my brother another E.Mail and he has warned me that if l persist in sending him E.Mails he will report me to the police for harassment, how do l stand now, do l invite him to report me to the police or just leave it. Sound advice required.

You could try the Citizens Advice Bureau - they might be able to help. It might be worth approaching the bank who have opened the Executors account and say that you are also an executor and would like your name adding to the account and to receive statements etc. They might not be able to help you but they should keep your request on file in case of any disputes with your brother.

Hi Carole
I did get in touch with Age UK and they called me on Fri 23, they left me a message to say that someone would ring me on Mon 26 to help me with the problem, fingers crossed.
Many thanks for your help.

I hadn't thought about Age UK - hope they have been able to help you.

I agree that Citizens Advice may be able to help. Also some solicitors do offer up to I hours free advice, without any further commitment from you. It might be worth checking what’s available in your area.
