When did the deceased die and what other assets are there?

What is the nature of the dispute between the Executors?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Died in January. No other major assets. Disputes as 2 wills exist. Not likely to resolve for a while so auggested they apply for ad collagenda but there are 3 executors 2 of whom are repped by the same solicitor that's is ripping the estate so a major conflict of interest and stalemate all round for 6 months now
