The trustee (you referred to it as the executor) of a trust has broad powers. Those powers are listed in the trust document.
Generally, those powers include the administration of all of the assets of the trust. If it is not in the best interest of the trust to have the brother at the house, then, as the trustee, your father may restrict his access to the property. In addition, the trustee is generally entitled to a reasonable trustees fee, which is paid from the assets of the trust. If the trust does not have any cash assets to pay the trustee, the trustee may liquidate assets in order to be paid.
