Welcome! My goal is to do my very best to understand your situation and to provide a full and complete answer for you.
Good morning. You have the right to receive your brother's word on this. The estate
and its assets are not your brother's personal piggy bank. Your brother, as executor, has a fiduciary duty to each beneficiary and each beneficiary is entitled to a copy of the full inventory of assets and periodic accounting of every dime in and out of the estate, including copies of the documentation substantiating the foregoing. If the executor fails to produce the inventory, periodic accounting, or fails to timely administer the estate, you can file to have the executor removed for breach of fiduciary duty. Then, if there is any misappropriation of estate assets or funds, you can also ask the court to award actual and punitive damages against the executor.
