I am dealing with an estate which has been distributed save for one beneficiary who is in prison (which may or may not be relevant) and entitled to £21k. After some to-ing and fro-ing he agreed to accept his entitlement by way of cheque, but he had not presented it when it finally expired.
For reasons which I won’t go into (as they don’t make a lot of sense) he has suggested that he may be able to accept it in future, but will not at present. Our accounts department are concerned at the prospect of holding the money indefinitely. However, clearly he has not disclaimed as such - he is just refusing to accept it at the moment.
Any ideas please?
