Both my sisters are executors of my mothers will.
And my sister told me that the executors account is a joint account in both my sisters names.
Which is probably why Barclays bank won't let my sister do the money transfer or any translations without the other sister being there with her at the bank.
So I think it is the same for cheques.
My sisters were managing the will themselves without a Solicitor and only had one for the sale of the house.
But they did not have a Wills and Probate Solicitor.
If they had have done then the money could have all gone into their Solicitors then their Solicitors could have then sent the money either direct to me or my Solicitor and I would not have been in this mess.
But my sisters did it all without a Wills Solicitor which maybe they should not have done.
My sister told me they have already paid the estate agent and their own solicitor for selling the house so that 118 is for me and my sister are not going to charge me for their estate agent or their Solicitor.
So once I get my money, if I do, the only person I pay is my own Solicitor.
But now it looks like I am not going to get my inheritance.
If my sister is Sectioned and that ill, she could be in hospital and ill for months and might not even get better at all.
So if that happens how the hell am I going to get my money?

The OP has already said that both sisters need to authorise a payment. If they both need to authorise an electronic payment I don't see that it would be different for cheques otherwise there would be no point having dual account.
