The executor won’t give me information about the estate. What can I do?

You should first establish that you are a beneficiary, or you have an interest in the administration of the estate. If you have an interest in an estate, you are entitled to information relating to that estate. This includes the provision of an estate account, which should set out amongst other things the deceased’s assets and liabilities as at their date of death. If you are being refused this information, you may ask the court to come to your assistance, and make an order that the executor must comply with your requests.
