Heres a tricky one for yous,
My grandmother just died ( without a will ) my grandfathers dead and so is my mother.
Myself and 3 other brothers have two aunties that we don't get along with on the same side of the family.
So lets just say my grandmother died with £30,000 in savings, 1/3 goes to both of my aunties ( her daughters ) and my mothers 1/3 split 4 ways to me and my 3 brothers. So I work that our at 1/12 each of the total.
Nows were it gets tricky. Because my brothers are reasonably well off and didn't have much of a relationship with my grandparents they don't want any of the estate. So they've signed off there part to say so. Now I want my cut never mind.
The question is do I still get my 1/12 as before or now am I entitled to 1/3 the same as my aunties ?????? And if not were does the other 3/12 go to that my brothers declined ???
Looking forward to the replies folks.
