Default Caveat preventing Grant of Probate

Hi All, this is my first post so apologies if it's in the wrong place! I'm an executor for my late mother's will. A 'vexatious litigant' who used to be part of the family has put a caveat on the will. A warning has been served and an appearance is apparently being lodged. The 'Caveator' had demanded a sight of the will and of the Estate Accounts. As a legatee and not a beneficary I believe he has no legal Right to see the will before Probate. Also I understand that the Accounts will not be available until after Probate has been issued. He has also demanded sight of a deed of variation on my late Father's will, As probate for that will was proved several years ago, is the Deed in the public domain? Should I comply with his demand regarding the will and the Deed? What happens now, do I have to put in a response to the Registry or do I wait to be contacted? The property which forms part of the estate has a sale agreed subject to Grant of Probate being issued so if the caveat is not lifted/contested the sale will fall through and the estate will suffer the loss.

Any advice will be welcome!

Many thanks
