  • Release of funds from Clydesdale need to go through court first?

    Posted on behalf of new user.


    Hi, could you offer some advice please. My mum passed away 12/1/14, my sister and I are joint executors of her will but the Clydesdale bank will not release funds from her two bank accounts until solicitor has taken it to sheriff court. The sums in question are approx £4000 and £14000. Solicitor has notified us that it will cost upwards of £1000 to do this, which when mums wishes are granted and her grandchildren are given small monetary amount from her savings we will likely face a shortfall. I am unhappy that this is having to go through courts at all as we are clearly executors of her will, surely the bank are able to release the money from her accounts? Many thanks in anticipation of your help.

    What's 'it'? It would be helpful to know.

    I like your pin shot
    I keep it with your letter
    Done up in blueprint blue
    It sure looks good on you
    And when you smile for the camera
    I know I'll love you better

    Then the shutter falls
    You see it all in 3-D
    It's your favorite foreign movie

        That's the answer then. There's a different procedure for total estate value below and above £36k but there's no requirement to use a solicitor.

          No and I suspect they have to as we do release funds for funeral.

              Other than one's desire to keep a poor, starving advocate from having to resort to the parish workhouse?
