How can I get a copy of my my fathers will
This post has a great explanation.
What can ne done if estate sold and the benefactor has not been told?
It really depends on what the will says.
I think you need to share more detail if you want better answers.
Ok Ive had a brief look at my brothers copy of the will. He said he would give me copy but hasn't. It states i get one fifth of the estate after 3 years as I have problems and am not good with finances. That is one fifth out of five. But they dont tell me whats happening. I didnt see copy of the will until amonth ago. My father died in jan 2013. There were problems with sibling rivalry for this result.
Do you know who is the executor?
That is the person you should be talking to.
If the house has been sold you share should be held in trust for you.
There also could be other things like superannuation or shares?
Yes my brother I spoke to Is one of the two execetors. He said in the meantime if I want money I have to ask him. I said what if all bills are paid and I have no money and need a couple hundred hes said no.
The executors job is to do what the will says.
If the will says you get your share in 3 years that's it. If they gave you the money early they would be failing their duty as executor.
But you should get a copy of the will and ask for a statement of what they hold in trust.
Ok thankyou Winston will do.
