Many thanks for your detailed answer.
Is there a mechanism or provision or acceptable methodology by which my remaining three brothers and sister can sign in a legal document their request to forego their share of the title such that it transfers to me alone.
also, is there any time requirment, insofar as the transfer to my deceased brother never took place though my mother is deceased since February 2007.Therefore, could the title remain for a further period in my mother's title(which I presume is the current state of affairs).If the latter is correct, is the transfer of house title not a remaining matter from mmy mother's will and completely separate from my deceased brother's intestate effects.Does the house transfer have to be part of the disposal of my brother's assets at all?
The older brother who is administrator is saying that the house cannot be dealt with separately from my brother's late affairs.I am wondering if they are legally separate matters.
My oldest brother/administrator and middle brother request that the money remaining in my brother's estate be signed over by us to them(i believe the others have signed to that effect) in discharge of medical costs they incurred in the past caring for my brother.It seems they will not actually be getting any cash as the money they are seeking we sign over to them is to be used to pay my late brother's debts in full.If the latter is to take place is it necessary to sign over the amounts they are claiming for costs they incurred in medical expenses for my deceased brother.Is it necessary for me to sign that or could I agree consent to have the money of the estate used in full to pay my late brothers debts without the specified amounts being paid to my respective brothers.
Some issues arise re. the house- it doesn't comply with council standard apparently in respect of sewage being neither attached to a main system nor having a septic tank.At present it seems a pipe leads straight into the river seemingly not in compliance with requirements.The middle brother has land adjacent to the property which could accomodate a septic tank(should he allow it and/or charge for same) but to access that land the adjoining house's(public house) yard would have to be traversed and the proprieter(a cousin) has said his solicitor doesn't recommend permitting same.(my brother/administrator has asked,I believe).My intention was to move into the house with my spouse and children but if the property is in the names of all the family, I am concerned that complications of any/many kinds might arise and at present I need to keep matters as clear and simple as possible.the plan to move in relates to being in a mortgage free property for practical reasons.I am thinking of mattersw like house insurance,property tax, water charges, remedying the sewage situation and other questions that might arise- making smaqll alterations to the property.I am not sure it is prudent to make the move at all until the title is clarified.How long might a double title change take?Is there a means by which, in signing the document re. title to all siblings, money to brothers etc, I could request an amendment to it to include a specific section confirming that the siblings are signing the title to me or is it necessary to rely on goodwill and a presumed agreement.I appreciate that I have a number of items raised in the one posting but am trying to be comfortable that moving my children quite a distance from their current home wouldnt backfire and require a further move ater as I have a very large family.
