My parent's estate has passed probate and it will divided up between the three children. 50% is going to one child and 25% is going to both of the other children. All parties involved have reach an agreement where the holder of the largest portion will buy out the remaining two 25% shares. Can the solicitor handling the settlement of the estate handle the transfer of the property without there being a conflict of interest and is this something that has to be done through Pexa? My thoughts on the matter is that there isn't a conflict as the solicitor is acting on behalf of the estate. Am I wrong? Can the solicitor draw up contracts to be signed by all parties? The new owner of the property will then register the transfer of the property through Pexa. I would appreciate any thoughts on this matter.
