My uncle died making a WILL and appointing a Trustee company as executor for the same.
I have already informed the Trustee co of hios death and am awaiting further action from them.
My uncle's estate includes 1/5th share in my grandfather's property, two savings bank accounts joint with me and a DMAT ac where I am the nominee. He was unmarried and the surviving relatives are 6 nephews and 2 nieces and a widow of deceased brother. He also has 16 grandchildren which I believe do not fall under class2 heirs. None of us are aware of the contents of the WILL.
I understand the asset not mentioned in the WILL will be distributed as if they are assets of a person who died intestate.
I wish to know the following:
1) My status / rights as regards the Joint Savings accounts in case
a) their mention in the WILL,
b) in case of their omission from the WILL.
2) Whether the executor can/ will take possession of the savings accounts and will operate the same?
3) Treatement of the DMAT a/c and who will effect the sale of shares?
4) Distribution of his share of the property in case of its omission from WILL.
