  1. The question is really "how much?" The cost will be several thousand to you in order to push it through.


  2. It can take at least 6 months and you may have a problem with potential liens on the property. Contact an attorney to review your options


  3. A partition action is a lawsuit, which could take in excess of 6 months if your brother defends the suit.
