Third Anniversary First Post
My mother in law died in September 2022 and her executor was her eldest son. He lives abroad and his partner is very unwell. He hasn't taken any steps re probate and his younger brother remains living in the property but wants to move to another part of the UK where he has family. In order to do this he needs to sell the home. My partner who is the middle brother is considering either taking over the role of executor or completing the paperwork for his eldest brother and getting him to sign off on this. Which would be the best approach to take? We do not have a copy of the will but know it's contents. The only asset is a house worth about £400K.
