What's in the will?

Q My mother died recently and my brother-in-law is executor of her will. I don't get on with him or my sister. How would I find out if I've been left anything? A Assuming your mother had more than PS5,000 to leave, your brother-in-law will have to make an application to the Probate Registry to deal with your mother's estate. Once he submits his application it will usually come through within six weeks, and at that point the will is open to inspection by members of the public, including you. If you like you cas n ask the Probate Registry to notify you when probate is granted by taking out a "standing search".
