I think it would fall to the Treasury Solicitor to deal with the estate, and from personal experience, that will take ages, I've seen glaciers move faster.
Gosh best of luck DL and thoughts with you
Enriching lives through European Property investment
Very sorry to hear this has happened to your tenant and you DL.
It is one thing wishing to help, but being an executor has considerable legal and -if done wrong- financial implications. (me & my dad did it for my mum - it was hard going, and my mum was well organised !)
I would strongly suggest revoking the role of executor (especially if it was done without your knowledge or prior discussion)
- if there are no funds in the estate for a funeral the council has a legal duty to provide one https://www.co-operativefuneralcare.co.u...s-funeral/
- and the same council officers should have experience of this situation and be in a position to act as executors / locate family etc
DISCLAIMER just my personal opinion - for legal advice consult a qualified professional grown-up.
Thank you for the links
this why I have handed over the estate to a solicitor
its a minefield

I don't know for certain, but I would suspect the solicitors administration costs will fall on the executors if there are insufficient funds in the estate ?
It looks as if there is life insurance and saveing in the estate to cover all costs
One wonders how she kept going so long? It must be a pretty sad and lonely existence without any family or friends, save of course for yourself. What did she do day to day to avoid going out of her mind? It sounds like she was pretty isolated.
From a 2011 Telegraph article
The poll found that many of the pensioners who live alone have no relatives living by, and some have no family at all.
Among the over-75s, half see family members less than once a month and only a quarter have weekly visits.
The Centre for the Modern Family, a new think-tank backed by Scottish Widows, said the findings were particularly worrying at this time of year.
Ros Altmann, Director General of Saga, said that some older people are lucky enough to be with their families this Christmas. But she added: “We must, as a nation, spare time for the increasing numbers of older people who are left alone.
“If you know a neighbour on their own, pop in and see if they want some Christmas company.”
The telephone survey of 3,000 adults found that 43 per cent of people over 60 said they lived alone. Of this group, 48 per cent said they had no family living locally while 25 per cent said they had no relatives at all.
Only 4.7 per cent of the over-65s questioned lived with their sons of daughters, although Asian families were more likely to live in “multi-generational households”.
Richard Jones, Marketing Director of Scottish Widows, said: “The ageing society is one of the biggest challenges we as a society face. If we don’t find ways to help people look after themselves in retirement, there is a danger that we will see increasing numbers of people alone, isolated and unable to cope.”
It must be an awful life
I tried my best to. See here for a cuppa but I always got the feeling she did not want me there
I am glad she is not alone again this Christmas
