My lovely MIL died suddenly on Tuesday. She had been ill but we were still shocked at her death.
Now we are left to deal with the practicalities.
Living with her was her daughter aged 62 who due to circumstances related to MH was fully dependent on MIL. She has no income of her own and everything for the upkeep of the house was paid from an account that was solely in MIL's name.
My DH is the Executor of the will. SIL has two daughters with whom she will eventually live, but for the short term she will remain in the house she shared with MIL.
We understand that the bank account will be frozen when they are informed of the death. All DDs for bills etc will be stopped.
If the Will has to go to Probate which could take some time how will my SIL cope with having no access to monies to pay for utilities etc? We are assuming either we or her daughters would pay the bills as they arrive, but that is not ideal.
Would it be possible to unfreeze the accounts prior to probate to let the DDs stay in payment?
