Topic: concealed will
Posted: 03/July/2005 at 16:07
Just wondering if you can give some information on if concealing a will is a criminal offence or just a civil matter.
By way of background we know my mother had her will kept at home. When she died her "friend" asked us for a settlement for looking after her. We told him we needed to get the will from home and talk to the solicitor. He asked if we had a copy of the will and we advised we did not. Since then he is claiming she died intestate and he was her defacto. We have both applied for admininstration and so on and so on.
Whether or not he is entitled to something is for the law but to steal someones will seems completely illegal. Do we have any action for a criminal investigation?
