    Hi Peridot

    Many thanks for your reply. After your last advice have pushed solicitor to move things forward and she is now seeking guidance from another colleague who deals with family advice with the possibility of going down the court route.

    A couple of days ago, had the opportunity of speaking to sibling and her husband, she just said that she was too busy to sign and when asked when she wouldn't be too busy she shrugged her shoulders and said didn't know. Husband asked why we couldn't pay them without signature?? Didn't think he was that thick after the reminders and papers they already had from solicitor.

    Their final salvo on departure was that it was sacrilege to divide Dad's ashes which again is nonsense. Have informed our solicitor of meeting.

    Will advise when things happen.

    many thanks best regards

      Delightful response. It appears they don’t get it or are just trying to be ultra difficult. So frustrating. Will be sorted in the end.
      I am a qualified solicitor employed by the LegalBeagles forum to provide guidance on a wide range of legal queries. I am happy to try and assist informally, where needed.

      Any posts I make on LegalBeagles are for information and discussion purposes only and shouldn't be seen as legal advice. Any practical advice I give is without liability. I do not represent people on the forum.

      If in doubt you should always seek professional face to face legal advice.

          Hi Peridot,

          Things were not moving so, sent a letter today by a different Solicitor (who deals with Court proceedings) giving the last sibling 10 days to either sign or we start Court proceedings and will be asking for costs to be awarded. All others have signed, we have paid them and can't see why she should be any different than the others.

          Have been advised that we may have to go down the mediation route before going to any Court, again an expensive cost but one we are prepared to do if needs must.

          Will revert again when we know more.

          Regards

            Hi HarveyH,

            Thank you for the up-date. It seems there is little else that can be done now other than waiting and seeing if the letter provokes a reaction (hopefully an action of signing the form, fingers crossed) but if not you know what needs to happen.

            Such a shame she can't play fair when everyone else has come to terms with the situation.

            Do keep us posted if you get a chance.

              Hi Peridot,

              To let you know the last sibling has signed the documents and handed them into our Solicitor.

              Don't know if it was because, she had our letter or whether she had already seen to them and had them to hand just to wind us up and cost us more money. We will never know but at long last we have got nearly to the end of it all. Our Solicitor will forward all to Land Registry and as its never been registered before, it will probably take 4 months to do. We will get there at some point and we thank you very much for your guidance and encouragement. Smiling, my wife wishes that she had been an only child but what else we would have done over the last 12 months, pity it didn't while away the hours during the winter months.

              Many thanks once again and regards HarveyH

                I am so pleased to hear that. You're definitely on the home stretch now. Must have been all those fingers and toes crossed that helped
                Make sure you have a celebration once the property has completed it's first registration in your joint names, even if it is just a wee tipple of something nice. Mind your backs carrying each other over the threshold once it's official
                All the best.
