Hi
Who are the Executors of her Will?
Clare
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

The solicitor is the Executor of her will

Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
Hi
The Executor will be able to call for copies of Bank Statements so it would be sensible to keep a record of all the monies that you spend so that there is a clear account of what has happened to the monies.
Assuming that you can raise the funds you will be able to buy the house from the estate so that your brothers receive cash instead
Please ask if you need further details
