Wanting advice, my mother in law passed away 1 month ago, my husband and his brother are executors, the 4 beneficiaries are making life hard by demanding the will that has just been picked up this week, we are sending it to them via mail as they do not live in the same town. Today one of them has informed us she will be getting a freeze by her lawyer on the property meaning furniture so we can't do anything with it and start to clean out her house. I wanting to know if she can do this and what do the executives do? Thanks

Yes of course they can, as executors they are entitled to a copy of the will. Scan it and send them a copy by e-mail right away.

Then have a phone hook-up so you can make these decisions mutually and in accordance with the will.
