I am wanting to know if anyone can advise. I have been made executor to a will with 3 children under 16 and the will said that the money be put into trust until they are 21. My solicitor is supposed to be carrying this out but has said that it doesnt matter as the amount is not a lot, and is opening a bank account instead (that I knew nothing about). So I want to know how long it would take to apply to the courts for them to take over the money? and approx how much it costs. It is complicated but I feel the solicitor is not doing his job properly and wonder if anyone else has been through the same scenario. Any advice??
