My mother-in-law died in Aug 2008 and had 3 sons. The youngest son is the executor and he and his wife have been handling the estate which is to be divided into thirds equally. My mother-in-law owned a beach condo and it was decided when she bought the condo that it would be rented out and when it’s not rented the brothers & their families could use it (this was a verbal agreement between all parties). The executor is trying to force his 2 brothers to buy him out or he is threatening to sell it. My question is, can he do this even if both brothers do not want to sell? Also, how does an heir know if the estate has been settled or finalized? Is there some sort of paper work that should be distributed? Thank you for your help!
