British will-makers fail to contact inheritors

Posted on May 14th, 2010 No Comments

According to police, the Lincoln firm Willmakers Of Distinction failed to contact two of three beneficiaries in a client’s will. Money left by a 96 year-old Birmingham man, totaling roughly 120,000 British pounds, was meant to split between his last living U.K. relative, a friend, and a neighbor. However, the executors of the state never distributed the money to either his friend or neighbor, and never informed them that they were included in his will.

In the court proceedings, it was revealed that this was not an isolated incident. A Chapel St. Leonards widow failed to receive her 3000 pounds that was left behind from her husband’s death in 2004. Instead, she was left responsible for the 2000 pounds it cost for his funeral.

Two employees from Willmakers Of Distinction have admitted guilt, while one continues to deny allegations of theft.

Although this case seems distantly in England, the reality of entrusting a will-maker with your estate is universal.
