Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
Why did the solicitor suggest that it would be a good idea for you to simply "reserve power"
In fact since you have Reserved your Powers rather than Renounced them you can in fact apply for Probate as well and then all documents will nee dto be signed by both of you.
You can obtain a copy of the Will and the Grant of Probate using the service here
I would then suggest that you write to your brother and the solicitor and inform them that unless you are kept up to date with the way matters are progressing at least once a month then you will indeed make Invoke your Powers.
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
You are most welcome I hope all goes well
