They are asking you to waive a formal accounting.If you have any concerns then don't sign it.It would save legal fees to not have to prepare it but if you have any concerns about your brother here don't sign it and make them do such an accounting.It lets you see what funds came in and where they went and whats left for distribution. It comes down to if you trust your brother, if you have been involved throughout or left out and want to know whats going on.You don't have to sign it here, its your call whether to do so.

I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Thanks again.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.
