Good evening thank you for your question, I am sorry to hear of your situation. It is incredibly early to be able to apply for probate unless your brother was also your mother's attorney and exactly knows her financial information, you are both equally entitled to apply for a Grant so you could do so yourself if you think he may not have done so.
If you two are the only children then you are both entitled to an equal share and not what he thinks to offer you. You could lodge a caveat at the probate registry if you think he will not act fairly in the administration of the estate.
Hello, no he can't, he can't touch your share.
Oh no, I am so sorry. Pop to a solicitor near you and they will probably advise a caveat just to make sure you get what you are due.
Do you need further assistance?
Hi, you could phone around his local solicitors, that would be the easiest way. Also they will place adverts in the local papers for your mother's area so you should start to read the classified ads for the bereavement notices.
