My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
What is the relationship between the Executors and the Beneficiaries?
How many residuary beneficiaries are there?
How many beneficiaries are objecting?
What is the size of the estate?
Just to check - not all the residuary beneficiaries are aware of the gift?
That is important.
The fact is that the Executors had no right to do this and cannot claim the money from the Estate.
If they wish to give this gift that is fine - but it comes from their share - or the shares of all those who agree.
There is no need for any mediation - it simply needs to be allocated correctly in the Estate accounts
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
