Re: Family Problems After a Death
The only person who now has the ability to take any action in regards to your grandfather's property is the Executor named in his will. His daughter, unless she is the Executrix named in the Will and has been sworn in at the Register of Wills, does not have the power to do anything. The Executor/Executrix basically steps into the shoes of your grandfather and has the ability to do anything he could do if he was still around, that includes persuing criminal charges if she does steal anything.
