Ask an UK Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
as a beneficiary in the estate you are entitled to information regarding the administration of it. Therefore, the solicitor should answer your queries
You should write a letter to the solicitors saying that you have taken independent legal advice and understand you are entitled to information regarding the estate as a beneficiary. Then list the Q's you want answered. If the solicitor fails to respond, write another letter addressed to the complaints partner in that firm. If you still get no joy, you can complain to the law Society.
Failing this, as a long term measure, it sounds as if you will have to apply to the Court to remove your brothers as the executors due to their failure to administer the estate. You will need to consult a specialist contentious probate lawyer to do this.
