Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
What assets are there still in the estate?
What happened to the property?
Right - so for clarity the remaining assets amount to £6,500 controlled by you brother and sister.
have you asked for your share of this money or are you willing for them to keep it?
If you do not wish to make any claim on the other assets then you have no need for worry,
The Caveat is o simply prevents anyone from applying for Letters of Administration
You are free to dispose of the sofa any time you wish - there is no action your brother can take against you.
If he wishes to obtain Letters of Administration and try and claim the money back then he is welcome to try and do so there is no five year rule and the fact that the loans and gift were made prior to the making of the LPA means that there is no wrongdoing on your part
I hope that this is of assistance please ask if you need further details
You can read about what a Caveat does here
As you can see it doe snot refer to anything about not disposing of any items in your possession
