I may sound mercenary but it has been almost a year since my dear cousin passed away without leaving a will. Myself and seven other members of the family are sharing in the estate. This has been confirmed by the solicitor who is dealing with the estate. She has contacted a cousin of mine a month ago to say that the estate is settled and just the utilities to pay. I am not 'gagging' for the money but I just feel that the solicitor is hanging onto the money to earn interest. I may be wrong. It does seem unfair. I know these things take time, my cousin died last December so it is over 10 months ago.
Please do not think I am greedy or sitting around waiting for a cheque to drop through the door. I would like to know if anyone else has had dealings with something similar.
The SNP is in a ‘tremendous mess’ apparently.
