     only had to remove my lower clothing bar my underwear. 

    This is why I can not understand their request. 

    After I broke my arm I received physio and had to remove my bra  but i could keep my knickers on. I'll talk to them before we start

  2. You also need to be careful using the secure payment method on these sites. I nearly got scammed, luckily my WiFi was slow and I was alerted in time. We contacted the police, banks etc. Apparently its a new scam where the scammers try to get your bank details.  Its used when trying to sell. They tell you that they have paid into the secure system  and it appears that you are talking to the sites chat line

  3. I'm to start physiotherapy tomorrow and thought a bra top and cycling shorts type pants would be appropriate. 

    On checking this with the clinic I've been told that I will be required to remove all of my clothing. 

    The exercises are for my leg and foot so I questioned their request but it seems that this is their requirement. 

    Is this now the norm?

  4. My bank will only post to my uk contact address. I'll  look into fed ex. I reckon if it went via normal bog standard post I'd have had it by now. The first one sent was taken by someone within the post system uk and an attempt was made to use it.  It can be used until I activate it

  5. Hi I was sent a new bank card by royal mail international end to end tracking. Posted on 6th May, left uk on 8th and then nothing. My bank now wants to cancel the card. royal mail say its being held by customs with nothing concrete to back this up. Apparently my private letter from my bank is to be opened. Deutsche post say they do not have my letter and its still in uk. Does anyone have any advice on how to find my letter.  Would contacting zoll at frankfurt airport do any good, if so does anyone have an email or address.  Thank you

  6. Hi, I am sure that I read something earlier in the year that since brexit it is not acceptable to send a cheque from UK to Germany via the post. 

    My son is to be sent money but a cheque is being sent rather than a bank transfer as requested. 

    Any help with info please

  7. I think if I had gone with my gp it would have been better. Sadly I have been very ill with various symptoms.  My gp thinks that I am reacting to one of the chemicals  in the vaccine.  however I will go ahead with my next one. I believe in the vaccination program,  I'm just one of the unlucky ones. Who knows number 2 maybe just fine

  8. yesterday we had our jabs. we went along well informed and also armed with a letter from my GP why I could not have one of the vaccinations due to allergies. I also have an infected tooth and i assumed the doctor would discuss this with me as i was feeling a little unwell. we knew from friends in various parts of Germany that we would fill out a form and have a chat with the doctor who would discuss the information on the forms and explain any misgivings that we had. My form had my allergy written in capital letters and my GP also explained in her letter that i had a severe allergy to one of the ingredients of one of the vaccinations.

    Our reality was that once we were given the forms we were told to hurry up because the doctor was waiting. The couple that came after us were told that they could fill theirs in later.

    when we eventually went into the cubicle there was no discussion, the doctor didn´t even look at the forms and i had to put my GP´s letter under his nose after i refused to remove my coat and roll up my sleeve. At that point he did go away to check my information and the other vaccination was brought in. we then went to collect out paperwork. All was good.  Afterwards we were told to sit for 10 minutes but there were no toilets that we could use. Shortly afterwards i started vomiting and struggling to breath. At this point i was told that i could sit outside and remove my mask which was a bit messy.

    I agree with vaccination. We need to get back to reality. However everyone sitting in the room afterwards were shocked that they were being treated like cattle in a market. i live in a very rural area and people had to travel for some distance to get to the centre but we didn´t deserve that

  9. Sold car, will talk to aok anyway. We were of the understanding that it was just the thing on my head to be removed.  I understand the full body check before it's removed but not to hold me to ransom with a pay first demand. We have now been told to return to original consultant and get directed to the hospital not a clinic.  Also been told that the charges are too much. Thank you for your help.  We sold privately in the end

    1) Have you thought of seeing another consultant?

     

    2) What does it cost?

    We've been told 2000, hence the need to sell my car fast. I've been told its easily treatable right now so We've reduced the price but carsale24 seem quite pushy. Mobile.de offered a silly price, as did another selling site. I'm getting interest from the South but I'm on North Sea coast

    I've sold a car in a couple of hours via mobile.de's quick sale to trade option:  Autoverkauf - Gebrauchtwagen einfach verkaufen (mobile.de)

    I wasn't aware that selling cars helped treat melanoma though...perhaps keep the top up, if you're driving a convertible (sorry, couldn't resist)!

     

    I have a melanoma on my forehead. The consultant will not remove it until I have a full body scan. This I must pay for because it is not covered by AOK. I can not afford it. We have been out of work for months with covid. I must sell my car to pay for my treatment. I tried mobile.de but their offer was too low. I'm prepared to sell at rock bottom but I'm not giving it away

  12. Has anyone used carsales24. I urgently need to sell my car but not sure of this method. 

    Failing that does anyone know of a dermatologist that doesn't charge for treating melanoma.  Stupidly I thought my health insurance would cover it. I'm up on the North Sea coast

    Again, this is because they are assuming you want a lawyer to take over the responsibility of executing the will for BOTH of you. That would need both of you to agree. You just need your own legal advice and someone representing your interests at your costs.

    There are hundreds of solicitors who do precisely this sort of work, and many of them will give you a free initial consultation. 

    Google is your friend here.

     

    I have contacted a uk solicitor and asked the question. Just waiting for a reply. i´m not disputing the will, i know that my sister is cherry picking the estate. I don´t really care about that. I just want to be informed and to know that everything is correct. I feel it is always better to be honest and open. what i will not stand for is the blatant dishonesty. My sister has refused to have the solicitor take the estate to conclusion, so yes, i need someone in uk to look after my interests. Obviously i am then free to share my information

    This screams manipulation. You are perfectly within your rights to ask for transparency, explanations and figures.

     

     

    What exactly do you mean by "papers for probate now in" ? Have you already signed and filed the papers ? Or are you in that process?

    You need to be a joint executor. Your sister can refuse to cooperate but will be shooting herself in the foot. If you go the reserve route you will effectively give all power to your sister. Resurrecting your rights after the horse has bolted will be an expensive, nerve-wracking, likely ineffective business.

     

    Before you sign any joint executor account at the bank, read and understand the small print and ask the bank for advice. Make sure you both need to sign for monies to be released from that account.

    The probate solicitor is in the process of applying for grant of probate. I presume that the probate office may then pick up on the cars that i believe have been undervalued.

    I am having to travel to uk to sign a joint executor account which is a drama in itself right now. However if i am to continually go to uk to sign for funds to be released, this will be a problem.

    I am hoping that once i can see the estate accounts that this in itself will end the problems.  I have made it known that i do know about the undeclared items. I just can´t prove the value. I keep being told conflicting stories.

    I expected my sister to cherry pick items from the estate, i just didn´t expect the lies and the exclusion

    I am looking for a solicitor in uk

    you need to instruct a solicitor yourself - at your own cost. They can then deal with the probate lawyer, and also your sister if necessary. That way, you are not arguing with your sister directly, and it is justifiable for you to have appointed a legal representative, given the fact that you are unable to be there in person.

    this is in hand and i have been looking for solicitors. I am keeping all whatsapp messages and emails as proof of what is going on and i also have saved a facebook status where a family member has been tasked with selling valuable items (  undeclared) at auction. I had actually been blocked from this status but it was seen by another family member

    They will need your signature. It can be done by mail. It is crucial you understand what box has been crossed at the end of the document. IIRC it is the last section before signature.

    You need the sollicitor to execute the will on your behalf. Make sure that is the box that is crossed.

    One cross in the wrong box can have huge implications.

    In 2021, you do not have to be physically present for every signature.

    I do need to be present to sign for executor account? Do I need to sign for the funds being released to beneficiaries. I have talked to a couple of banks and they all say that they don't deal with executor accounts. I feel that if I can have a uk solicitor act on my behalf my problems will be reduced. I need to check on the new laws. I'm not totally convinced that our probate lawyer is fully informed when she says that an appointed attorney can only work for both of us

    Have you phoned the bank and asked if you can receive the papers for signing by mail ?

     

    You can call UK for 1 cent a minute with these guys. This was a link provided by someone else on TT recently.

    The paperwork has been handed to probate lawyer to apply for grant of Probate. I'm hoping that this will take longer and allow me to get to uk unrestricted.  Again my sister tell me that I must be in attendance to sign anything. On the day mother died I was told that I was to receive nothing. It hurt but I accepted that. I only knew that I was joint beneficiary/executor when It came about that I had to sign to release the will. I wasn't included in the funeral and I am forbidden to contact the solicitor.  Of course I do and I get the angry messages afterwards. 

    I have been told that it is the solicitor who has said my being an executor is a problem.  The solicitor says it's not.

    I am trying to find a uk solicitor who will at least answer one question before I proceed

    If you still feel you need to something more , then contact the Probate Service online and express your concerns and  maybe asked for a freeze on the application.

    I have written to the probate office but as yet no one has replied

    • appoint an attorney to act on your behalf – fill in an attorney form (PA11)

    I asked about this and the probate lawyer told me that the law had recently changed weaning that an appointed attorney would have to be agreed by all executors and would have to work for all executors. Guess what, my sister refused

    Says your sis or the sollictor? It sounds very wrong. Ask the sollictor directly if this was his advice. And if so (which I doubt), why.

    says my sister. I have tried to talk to the probate lawyer but she is making it very clear that she is working for both of us and will only reply to both of us. she has told both of us that an executor account needs opening and final accounts made. an executor account requires both of us signing. whenever i question anything my sister threatens to upset elderly relatives and hold up the whole process. i´m hoping with covid restrictions relaxing, i can return to uk and try and sort some things out. however my sister is refusing to allow me into the property and i suspect won´t "be available" for any important signing. with testing, hotels and loss of wages a trip over is set to cost over 2000

    This sounds confused. Under reserve just means you have the option of applying later for probate as executor... long, arduous, costly - and why would you do that? It sounds like the sollicitor is doing the paperwork to file the application for probate for your sister to be sole executor? So then your sis will be in control. And you will get what you are given. Which may not be your fair share. Because she will be reining in and distributing the monies. Not what you want. She will claim that she is saving you loads of sollicitors fees of course.

     

    Give control to the sollicitor by having them execute the will. Not your sister. This is not the same as them applying for probate on behalf of your sister. If the sollictors are exectors they get Letters of Representation, not probate. I hope you have not already signed. Read all the words and understand the language before you sign anything.

     

    Who is the applicant at the end of PA1P ? Your sister (first box) or the sollictor (second box) answering the question how are the applicants entitled to apply? It needs to be the sollicitor if you want them to be executors. Of course, that will cost a hefty fee. There is unfortunately no way round that.

     

    If you do not want to be an executor (i.e. file all the paperwork with the authorities yourself) you can do one of the following:
    • give up your right to apply for probate (known as ‘renunciation’) – fill in a
    renunciation form (PA15) and send it with your probate application (PA1P)
    • reserve your right to apply for probate later if another executor cannot deal
    with the estate (holding ‘power reserved’) - this is what your sister is proposing in order to hoodwink you into renouncing - as far as I understand...
    • appoint an attorney to act on your behalf – fill in an attorney form (PA11)

     

    This last option is what you need to be looking at to secure your fair share of the inheritance.

     

    I am still not a lawyer... keep talking to your sollicitor, not your sister.

    I have asked that the probate lawyer deals with everything but apparently this must be agreed by all executors and guess what, my sister is refusing

    I wonder how she got her mucky paws on it.  

    probate not granted yet. she has just put the money into her own account claiming that the probate lawyer told her too. In fact the probate lawyer has pointed out that the monies must be in a separate account and be accountable. the probate lawyer is young and new to the game and obviously want an easy time of it. Biggest problem is that she won´t talk to me alone and whenever she replies she replies to both of us which then results in my receiving nasty emails and threats to upset elderly relatives plus the promise to make the whole process go slower. ie not sell the property
