  • While Kordowski employed some rather unorthodox methods, his efforts are to be commended. I will personally be glad to assist with the transfer of hosting to a US site, where libel laws specifically protect US citizens from UK libel actions.

  • Having had to deal with a solicitor who failed to follow up a matter until it was out of time with another regulator, then failed either to pay to me money held from my late wife's estate, or account to me or IR/HMRC for the tax on it the site will be missed.

  • With regards to Anonymous | 9-Jan-2012 7:44 pm post stating that a solicitor failed to "account to me or IR/HMRC for the tax". With regards to my late Mother's Estate we found that it was impossible to independently verify the amount of Inheritance Tax(IHT) that had been taken out of the Estate and off the Beneficiaries. HMRC refused to even discuss the Inheritance Tax with us as we were not the Executors of the Estate. The Executors of the Estate were the firm of Solicitors who had written up my elderly Mother's Will and also acted as Trustees, Administrators of the Estate and IHT advisers!
    The Grant of Probate doesn't even state how much IHT has been taken out of the Estate. This is clearly an area where greater transparency is needed because as it stands such a lack of transparency and accountability could be open to all types of abuse. A Beneficiary should be able to independently verify with HMRC the amount of IHT that has been paid or it should be clearly stated and verified on the Grant of Probate.
