Thank you for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland. I've looked at your calculation. There is no reason why you can't vary the will so that you pay less for the house and they get more of the cash which is already in the estate. A variation of the will has to be made within two years of the date of death and you can quite legally avoid the additional LBTT by paying less consideration.
Tell them you all want to vary the will so that you save the ADS on the transaction.
The system has reported a payment failure and won't allow a phone call. The site should be contacting you directly about this as it's not something that experts can do anything about.
