Could you please provide an opinion on the fact that my eldest brother and a retired solicitor are executors. Presumably funds from a sale would go into my mothers bank account which my brother holds the cheque book for. How can we ensure that we all get equal shares of the sale proceeds.
Sorry for the delay.
As the Deeds are in your names, the proceeds will pass to you/the proprietors and will NOT pass to your Mother, so you have nothing to worry about.
On a separate side point, looking ahead, as the retired Solicitor is Executor with your brother, you have peace of mind that your Mother's Estate (which won't include th ehouse) will be dealt with correctly.
I hope this helps.
