Our client was subject to a High Court application to remove him as executor of an estate worth £1.3m+. The case included an inquiry into what happened to the income from eight rental units held on a Will Trust. Our client also faced demands to explain the money spent on the properties’ management.
The case was complicated by parallel and hostile divorce proceedings between the two original estate executors, and a significant history of cash-only dealings by the deceased.
The executor aspect was successfully determined at trial, with our client avoiding liability for the claimant’s significant costs.
