I cannot for one moment understand what the delays because with no chain and you already have a mortgage offer, it’s probably about as simple as it gets.
I assume that the GBP47,000 that you are paying for the property takes into account your share and has been agreed not just by the executors but by the other beneficiaries.
Your solicitor is probably in the best position to ask the executors solicitor whether and when they are going to be in a position to exchange.
With regard to your own solicitor, if you have not already made a complaint to the firm’s Complaints Partner then you should do so now. If nothing else they should be telling you what the delays because there is no reason why this shouldn’t have been completed in under six weeks, never mind six months.
When the whole matter has resolved then make a formal complaint in writing to the Legal Ombudsman and I would do that in respect of the conduct of this firm and the previous firm.
