1. Dear Bernadette, firstly, any legal expenses incurred in the administration of the estate of your late father will come out of the monies belonging to the estate. You won't be forced to pay them. It is a decision which the executors can make, to employ a solicitor. In fact, i would suggest you do so and agree fees in advance, particularly if you don't feel certain about what to do.
2. Be aware that it is a decision solely for the two executors whether to employ a solicitor or not. Your other two sisters who are not executors have no right to be included in any decision made on this issue. So, this is something you must decide with your brother, the other executor.
