I have a situation where a lady died intestate and her mother (who lacked capacity) was her sole beneficiary under the intestacy rules. Mother has now died. No Grant in daughters estate could be obtained as we needed a deputyship for mother and the family do not get on at all.
The mother has left a Will that appoints a firm of solicitors to be her Executor. They have said it would be “inappropriate” for them to act in the intestate daughters estate but I don’t see who else could take out the grant. The siblings of the intestate are not entitled to share in her estate, only the mother was. Can anyone assist?
