Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.

My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.

If the 3 of you agree, there is no reason why your other sibling can't inherit the whole Estate.

You all would need to sign a Deed of Variation (which can be done anytime within 2 years of your Dad's death), varying the terms of the Intestacy and confirming that your 1 sibling is to receive the whole Estate.

A local Probate Solicitor is likely to charge you £250-£350 plus VAT to prepare the Deed for you.

I hope this assists and sets out the legal position to you.

Kind Regards

Al
