Hi all, Looks like I'm another confused beneficiary with some major executor issues so any help most appreciated. In brief, Mum dies with 3 sons left as beneficiaries and the youngest being an accountant appointed as executor of will. The 4th and oldest brother is written out of the will. The executor creates a rule that goods recently gifted to Mum can nominate their return. Lawyer for exec. confirms this is normal procedure with no time limit on when gifts were given. The lawyer is a lying a-hole as is the executor. The executor deliberately underestimates value of estate cash held, value of items in house and value of the car in case the 4th brother makes a claim . The exec. removes $30,000 approx from the accounts and only declares a few grand cash at time of death in the inventory of assets when doing probate. When making a further distribution comes up with 10 pages of financials as he had being managing Mum's money and paying her interest for many years but then discloses she was in debt to him of thousands of dollars at time of death. This wasn't disclosed in The Inventory of Assets and Liabilities. I challenged this through a lawyer as I copied many financial documents before they went interstate to his address. He came clean and acknowledged it as an "ERROR" but then attempts to blackmail us [of sorts ] i.e. Take this sum now or will delete what he calls unofficial loans of some 20k [truly bizarre]. But we have to accept flights and accommodation for his wife, 1 k of vet bills and, car costs of 1k. It is worth noting he took Mums car interstate against my advice as the car had some major faults, charged the estate for repairs and extras then gave the car away to his gardener/ immigrant friend, then only allocated 3k for its value which was 1k less than what he recorded in the inventory of assets. He had already transported car interstate [wife] before according a value in the inventory of 4k. I get supreme court to ask him to lodge an administrative account which he eventually does but then lies his head off in that as well and twists things big time . Do I go to police and have him charged for lying on an affidavit? And can he use estates funds to fight this? Do I attempt to go to supreme court and have him removed for misconduct? And do a full audit at great expense and risk? Do I try the sect 54 in Supreme court and lay it on the line before a Judge to at least remove the cash and get him to lodge tax returns which he won't do until we approve his moronic dog, wife, car costs, etc.? I'm lost. Cheers. PS: He confesses eventually to the real value of goods in the house at double to triple he recorded on inventory .
