Den of thieves

re Christoph "Maybe the emails could be checked by a third party such as their lawyer, who would only pass on essential information? I've no idea of the legalities involved."

Don't take this personally but what a stupid f'ing idea, certainly here in the UK

Lawyer : "We examined your late relatives e-mail account today. The only relevant matter is the new will they drew up with ourselves yesterday, ahem, i meant to say six months ago. And in gratitude of our services, they generously left everything to our firm. Good day to you Sir."

A few years ago, (no link no bookmark to the actual article of the time), but on the topic of wills and estates, i do remember i was actually very surprised to see the Law Society giving this advice :

Do NOT make your lawyer, any lawyer, the executor of your estate.

Repeat DO NOT.
