Thank youAs far as I know the electricity alone would have cost around €1000.00 to reconnect and possibly a cert from an electrician. Don't know why they'd disconnect the water. In any case i've been following this post and I'd advise you to check out everything you've said regarding the expenses incurred. Apart from your relations being there for the deceased and making sure everything was taken care of, they were the only people there it seems and might indeed have incurred most of the expenses they've said they incurred. It is certainly not an extravagant amount and living in a nursing home costs a hell of a lot more than just the fee, never mind the health insurance plus everything else. You might have to lose your suspicions on this one I feel and in any case there's nothing you can do about it now anyway. Worse still, you've lost your brother and his wife as well. Just leave it now, enjoy whatever inheritance might be there for you both and get on with living. Life's too short.
