Can an executor who is purchasing the house make one payment

Customer Question

Can an executor who is purchasing the house make one payment at closure of estate (say £75,000 minus his share as beneficiary) or does he have to put in the full £75,000 at the start and be re-reimbursed for his share of the estate?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: My brother and I are co-executors and I feel he should provide the full cost of the house to the estate. He wants to know if he can pay one amount of £75,000 minus his share of the estate. He does not want to provide 100% then to get back his 25%.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Estate Lawyers generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first

For clarity - your brother wishes to purchase one of the assets of the estate - is that correct?
