My siblings and I (three of us) were my father's executors. They were happy for me to do it as we agreed on everything and I kept them informed by email. So it was your first suggestion. Obviously when instead people don't trust each other you might not want to do that.

Your siblings have 2 options. They can either renounce which will require a deed of renunciation each to be submitted with the application for the grant. Once they have renounced they can never be appointed to act. Or they can have power reserved which means they're not acting now but reserve the right to do so in the future if circumstances dictate eg if you were to die before the estate administration were completed. In that situation they would then need to apply for a fresh grant in their own name (s).
