Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is***** will be working on your question today and I am looking forward to our conversation.
I know your question is important to you and I will be giving it the time and attention it deserves.
Sometimes responses and replies take time, so I ask you to be courteous and patient to allow me the time to type answers to you and also to others. At times I may even have to do some research.
I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.
Did the Will specifically give them the cottage?
So actually what you're saying is that the cottage was not specifically left to the boys but they're just getting the full estate, correct?
Why is executor wanting to sell the cottage if you want the cottage for the children?
Here is the answer to your query. Please do not hesitate to ask any follow up questions related to this response and know that I will respond as soon as I can.
You can write to the office of the children's lawyer and you can also retain your own estate lawyer because he's not acting in the best interest of the children when he's being advised by their legal guardians that they don't want the property sold and they are inheriting the entire estate. In fact your 18 year old is an adult. You should let the office of the children's lawyer know that you believe he wants to buy the cottage from the estate but that cottage was not left to him.
You could also apply to have him removed as executor and trustee and have yourself replaced in his stead. It may make the most sense for you to retain an estate lawyer at this point in time.
Does that help?
I know it is and that is excellent.
But the OCL will represent his brother.
And you should retain your 18 year old his own lawyer as I don't think they will care what he says.
You are very welcome.
