Deceased Estates

We were instructed to seek letters of administration in favour of two sisters of a lady who died about a year ago now, leaving no Will.

The deceased left behind a husband, but no kids, so her estate is shared roughly equally between her husband and her siblings. Our clients were happy for the husband to apply to be the administrator, but he has not responded to any requests to do so, nor to requests for information to make it easier for our clients to obtain the letter of administration, including details of the deceased assets and liabilities.

It may be that the husband will make a claim that his wife failed to make adequate provision for him, which unfortunately for our client, might get messy.

Having a Will can certainly alleviate some of these sorts of issues.
