They have said that as far as the land in London is concerned, this is held by trustees, and the solicitors have made a search at the Land Registry and found that the title to the property has not been registered.
The problem is they will not give me a price for registering this and the land at Somerset.
The land in London and Somerset has been in my fathers name since the 1960's when he purchased it. I believe the solicitor has the deeds to both pieces of land, am I within my rights to ask them to give them to me.
One more question. As my brother is also executor of the will, will I have to have his permission to obtain the documentation mentioned?
Yes, they will likely require that he is involved as well. They will probably require him to verify his identity and produce a letter of authority.
If you have instructed solicitors to act on your behalf to get the grant then you should consider referring them to the solicitor who has the deeds.
