My husband's stepfather died two years ago. He left the house (which was our family home and in his name) to his wife who still lives there and the remainder of his Deceased Estate land to be divided amongst all beneficiaries ( stepchildren from the previous marriage - all adults - and his half-sister and his brother). One of the stepsisters was appointed executor of will along with her brother. There were also some smaller nominated items which went directly to the stepchildren. So far they seem to have done almost nothing except to distribute the assets of the Deceased Estate that benefited themselves, yet have still not transferred the house deeds into my mother's name. My mother covers the upkeep of the house and insurance from her income, yet they threaten to sell the house to pay legal fees despite commercial land being available to sell which would more than cover this. They have made little effort to sell the commercial land, yet they claim that the lawyer handling the Will has racked up huge fees and we cannot see why or how given what has been done to date. We have not seen any details of the fees agreed. Can we take a vote of no confidence in them on the basis that they have looked after their own interests and really abused their power as executors? We have had almost no communication with them but we can see no reason as to why they are failing to deal with the Deceased Estate to the benefit of all beneficiaries and seem entirely intent only on delaying the sale and distribution of the Estate as provisioned, which is stressful and damaging to my mother's security (she is 71).
