My brother is executor of my mother's estate
who passed away last month. She left myself, my brother, and two other sisters as the ones who would be sharing the proceeds from the estate.
My brother and I have been close since childhood, but when my mother died strange things began to happen. First: He ordered a dumpster to be dropped in our driveway before my mother had even passed! She was dying in her room inside.
2 He brought his wife, and none of his siblings to see the estate lawyer.
3. He now has locked the house and changed the locks and even boarded up doors because he wants NO one in when he is not there, stating he is liable now.
I really want to be able to go to my mother's home and have asked him more than once and he refuses, saying that he trusts me, but not my little sister who does not like him, not to come in and 'take things she feels justified in having.
How much power exactly does my brother have?? Is this okay? Many people tell me that they have not heard of a sibling doing that to fellow sibs. He even referred to himself as the "Boss". Help!
