I am the Administrator of our late brother's estate. He died

Customer Question

I am the Administrator of our late brother's estate. He died intestate in December 2021. I was granted Letters of Administration on 28 April 2022. The Net value of the Estate is £ 281,200. A Section 27 Notice was published in London Gazette in June 2022 (2 months claim period expires 18 August 2022).
JA: What documents or supporting evidence do you have?
Customer: Not sure what you mean. I have Death Certificate/Letters of at i and my 2 surviving brothers are the only beneficaries (to the best of our knowledge. My late brother was single /never married/ no children (to the best of our knowledge) Because my older brothers are 86 and 81 I would like to distribute the estate asap (i.e not wait until the 6 month recommended period has expires. Can you quote for indemnity insurance so I am covered if any UNKNOWN claimants submit a claim before the end of October 2022.
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: I can't think of anything

Thank you for your patience. We do not provide insurance quotes regrettably. However if to the best of knowledge your brother was not married and had no children (partners would not inherit intestate unless civil partner) then you would distribute and if people have not come forward it is highly improbable they would come with 2 months to go.
