My sister is Executor to my mother’s Will. She, my other two siblings and I are each a beneficiary of the will. Early this year, my sister sent me a letter concerning dates for selling the house and asked me for my input. I emailed my reply but received a message from my email account saying that delivery of that email had “failed permanently”. Since I knew she was anxious to receive my reply I re-sent it and, as a precaution, also sent it to the Deceased Estate’s (her) solicitor and asked him to forward it on to her. Although I received acknowledgement from the solicitor saying he received the email, I did not receive any feedback from her. Last week I received another letter from my sister suggesting that the house be repaired and cleaned - she asked for my input. I responded by email and, as a precaution, also sent the email to the Estate’s solicitor and asked for it to be forwarded on. I did not receive acknowledgement of receipt of email from either, so I rang the solicitor to check if he had received it – he confirmed that he had not, so I re-sent the email to both parties. He then confirmed that he had received the (second) email. At that stage there was still no feedback / confirmation from my sister that she had received the email. A couple of days ago I received another email: my sister has written that I must refrain from sending “unnecessary emails” [the email she refers to was a reply to repairs she asked me to approve on the house]. She also said “Any costs associated with these unnecessary irrelevant emails will be itemized and forwarded to the parties that are responsible”. I don’t understand how my emailed replies could be considered unnecessary. I am sending email to the solicitor because my sister has contacted me for input and I have had problems sending my responses to her through email directly. Can you confirm whether the Estate’s (her) solicitor has a right to charge me for forwarding my emailed responses on to her? As she claims to not receive my replies, I find forwarding my replies to the solicitor a necessary precaution and most likely will need to do until the Estate is sold.
