We are administering the UK estate where the chap died intestate. There are three children inheriting, one of them lacks capacity. He receives state benefits and doesn’t have a bank account.
The deceased had property in India which passes to the three children under the Hindu Succession Act. When the property in India has been liquidated and funds may be distributed to the three children, would the Indian law firm dealing with that be able to pay the funds into the UK Court Funds Office for the incapacitated child? If that isn’t an option, would it be necessary for someone to be appointed a deputy for financial matters for the beneficiary in order to receive the funds?
