We verbally agreed that he would pay the money back when my father's estate was settled. This is not the first time I have loaned him money in the past.
Yes it was.
Are you still there?
Thanks Jo. I'm a little disappointed with your reply. Unfortunately there was no written agreement about this with my brother, although I have a print out from my bank account to prove that the money was loaned to him. Presumably there are no further steps I can take.
