Looking for advice as the executor of my grandmother’s Will (passed away July 2019) has been in possession of all of her assets since January and we have not received any of the estate accounts, any communications or any of her assets. My brother (minor) and I are joint beneficiaries of 50% with the Executor entitled to the other 50%. He has distributed 3 gifts of money himself to stated family members 2 months ago.  My solicitor has had confirmation that the solicitor dealing with the grant of probate has closed the account (I have not ever heard from him myself) and my solicitor has sent the executor communications on 3 occasions acting on my behalf with no reply. My mother passed away before my grandmother but both my brother and I’s names are stated in her Will.
