1. Essentially, you need to cite the executor or get the executor to renounce their right to take out probate to the will. Then once the executor has renounced the executorship, someone else, such as yourself, needs to take out letters of administration to the estate so that the will can be administered. Just because an executor will not act, this does not mean that the estate simply cannot be administered.
2. You can then simply administer the will in accordance with its terms and divide the cash amongst whoever is supposed to benefit. There is no reason to not administer the estate merely because the solicitors will not act.
