How do I request financials for my grandmothers estate? 6 Answers as of June 21, 2011My family owns apartments now since my grandmother died and she left it to three of us and then grandmas brother owns the other half. My aunt recently gave my grandmas brother and they are now the directors while my other aunt and me are only shareholders. They refuse to show us the financial. What can I do?

Contact a lawyer right away. What you describe doesn't sound good to me.As a shareholder, you are entitled to review the books and financial records. If they won't offer them after receiving a lawyer's letter, then you may have to go to court to see what's going on and perhaps take over the whole thing yourself. You'll need a lawyer to do all that. Good luck.

Go to your local probate court and open an administration on your grandmother;s estate if it has not already been done. Also, you should seek legal advice and assistance from an attorney who handles probate law.
