Informing me i have to have my brother's permission. Is this true? i cannot believe anything the solicitor tells me.

Hi
Thank you for your question
My name is Claire and I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
Does your brother agree with your concerns?

Yes, but he is only interested in getting the money from the sale of the house. He says we should tackle the solicitor after the sale. i feel by then it will be too late. i do not even know if my brother has denied the file, the solicitor has lied before. My brother is not speaking to me and i am left to sort it out...
