    Answered . The IRS can put a lien on any real estate that you own, even if it is jointly with a friend or relative. I suggest if you are going to have joint real estate that you have your attorney set up a limited liability company to own the property. The lien will not apply against the property itself, and you should be able to transfer it.

    Before you do anything, you should contact a good tax attorney to discuss this.

    Good luck!

Depending on all facts you may wish to address the matter with an attorney not also representing your brother.
