Hi again,
As Executor, your brother is under a legal obligation to carry out the administration of your Mother's Estate in accordance with the terms of her Will.
He would therefore be failing in his duty if he were to withhold the monies due to you. I would hope that it won't be necessary, but if he does, you should instruct your own Solicitor to write to him to explain the above!
I hope this helps and good luck.
Kind Regards
