Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further informtaion first.
For clarity the deceased left his brother half of his house?
How much is the house worth and how old is the brother?
What other assets does the living brother have?
When was Probate granted?
Just to be clear then
The brothers lived together in a property they owned jointly - and each paid for their own upkeep - is that correct?
So it is the brother who lived away that has died?
Do you have a copy of the unsigned agreement?
Are you aware that the site charges extra for a phone call?
I did not call - I suspect one of my colleagues attempted to do so
I am afraid that you cannot appoint a solicitor to replace you as Executor - if you do not wish to act then your brother will continue alone.
