Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
Do you intend to insist on a sale of the property?
Is there any provision in the Will that allows for a delay in realising the assets?
But you do not wish to force the sale of the property now?
How much is the property worth in total?
Do you trust him?
The proper way forward is for there to be a formal independent valuation of the property.
It should be sold - to the brother if he wants it, and the money paid into the Estate and divided in accordance with the terms of the Will
Please ask if you need further details
None at all - only in respect of any improvements he has made to the property (if any)
He has no extra claim because of having been there for 10 years.
The property must be sold - either by him buying the estate out or by it being sold on the open market
He has no extra claim because of the passing of the years
Either he buys the half share of property from the Estate or the property as a whole is placed on the market.
