You cannot distribute the money between everyone else unless
he formally disclaims it.
If you know his bank account details which you can get from
a cheque or credit card etc, you can simply put it straight into his bank
If you go into his bank, the bank may let you deposit the
money into the account if they can find the number, without giving the number
to you. They might start shouting data protection act you but that is not data
protection issue. It might be worth a try.
The correct way of dealing with this is for him to sign a
deed of variation of the will whereby he disclaims request. The solicitor
should write to him in those terms enclosing the document and asking him to
sign it to say that he does not want the money
The solicitor can tell him that if he doesn’t want any further contact from the solicitor or anyone else, or needs to do is sign the document and return it and he will never hear from anyone ever again.
