    Hi all,
    the administrator of an intestate estate has sent me numerous correspondence telling me to sign over my share of inheritance to her.
    Its a long story but i have kept the evidence of all her letters thats she sent to me where she has said that she doesnít want me to sign it back to the estate and that I should sign it over to her. She has also said in her letters that she will take me to court if I donít sign over my share to her.
    I have had the deed of variation drawn up- it cost £600. The administrator very keenly gave me £250 towards it- I have a receipt of the payment from the solicitor.
    How shall I go about claiming back the £350 I paid towards the deed of variation? Do I wait until the estate is finalised? Shall I send a letter to her now?
    shall I write a letter before claim? Sorry for all the questions but I think I should be able to get the money back and if she doesnít pay me - Iím confident Iíd win the court case if I went to the small claims court due to having the receipts the solicitor and having letters from the administrator
