    Default Lawyers as executor!

    My brother died without a will. It took a year to settle his estate.

    Definately make a will. My parents have not only had to deal with an unexpected death of their son but also dealing with alot of legal issues because he had no will, a house and children with an ex.

    Just in addition to everything that has been said - no more phone calls. Emails and faxes only. You need proof of all the times you have tried to contact the solicitor and he hasn't responded. Probably fine, but this is just in case something goes wrong. Word them carefully though
