what to do with an incompetant one
Without giving full details on a public forum, the solicitor handling the estate of my late father is being very slow, and it is potentially going to give us a tax bill that (if he'd done the work on time) we shouldn't have. It's coming up to 3 years since he died, and the tax avoidance measures my Dad wanted to be set up are still not in place yet.
I'm just having the whole "the longer he drags it on, the more he charges us" kind of unease going on, and I wonder if there's any solicitors (or accountants) who could advise me whether he is being particulary slow/incompetant about this - and if so, what can we do about it (without causing too much grief and financial outlay to the family)
- randomlurcher, we're setting up a discretionary trust fund, to minimise IHT when my mother dies. We have now been told by the accountant that as it was not all set up within two years of Dad's death, then we may be liable for some capital gains tax on a particular property, which I think has been the tipping point.
I'm a beneficiary not an executor, but my brother is both, so I will send him in on the attack, as my mum really has had enough of this and the stress is starting to effect her health.
will do so tomorrow jpenno, when I have a clearer head and more time
