I see that you haven't made a payment for the question, but I'm going to assist you a little. If you want to ask a follow-up question, please make the required payment.
No, only the person with the letter of authority is authorised to deal with the estate. But, that person must administer the estate in accordance with the terms of the Will. So, if you are the heir, you will still receive the assets.
Please remember this is a dialog if you have follow-up questions please make the required payment, then use the REPLY button and ask your further question. I would like to continue assisting you, but I need to concentrate on people who make payments for their questions.
