Executors of Wills
« on: July 05, 2003, 01:38:10 AM »
Hi.  I'm not a graduate or a student, so feel free to ignore or abuse me.  ;D (Great smileys on this board)

Recently, my mother has decided to change the will of my deceased father, as she is an executor.  My brother is co-executor.  After my father died, my mother and brother freely discussed the will with myself and the other siblings.  But recently they are doing this in private, as though it is in their power to do as they wish because they are the executors.

My question is: As co-executor, does my brother have any powers in re-writing or changing the will, or are his powers limited only to carrying out the will of whoever's name it is in, as well as looking after the financial side of things?
