Question posted in the General Law category relating to KwaZulu-Natal

My father passed away in 2014 and our step mother requested for certified ID copies together with affidavits stating that the deceased was our father and this was requested where he was working t the department of justice. After that there was no feedback provided on the process after the details were sent over and she was not responding to any of our communication. She came back saying the property in Durban North was needed to be sold and she wants Affidavits stating we give her consent to sell the house as we are listed as beneficiaries . We co operated and sent the details and the house was sold and transferred in August 2021 and she is not responding to my emails up till today.

Trust you are well I am reaching out to you to seek assistance or clarity on a matter that has beejn goingon from the year 2015. Our step mother was an executor of an estate and a request was sent for her to be removed. There has never been proper feedback or conclusion on the matter and the executor is not replying to all emails sent to him as the last communication received was asking for bank details in March. If only you can enlighten me of what might be the cause of the lack of communication in this case. Me and my siblings were advised that the estate issue was in the final stages in March yet the house in Durban north was sold and transferred over in 25/08/2021.We have cooperated fully and sent over the relevant and requested details and documents but no response is provided to us. I know the concerned party is solely your client. Please can you plead with them and tell us what the matter is with no responses.
