We are administering an estate on behalf of two lay executors. The estate admin has been protracted due to various family disputes, but we are now finally in a position to finalise. Four residuary beneficiaries have been left a parcel of land that now needs to be assented to them, but two of the residuary beneficiaries are refusing to sign the AS1. They cite no legitimate reason and have not indicated that they wish to disclaim their interest to this land.
Would it be possibly to assent the land to the beneficiaries without their consent? Failing that, is there a way that their share of the land could be dealt with so that the trustees are not left holding the land?
