My deceased father's house is in the probate process. It will soon be declared homestead. As PR (and 1/10 heir), I want to sell it ASAP. 8 of the 10 heirs agree and signed waivers to let me sell the house. Two heirs refuse to cooperate at all. They will not sell, speak with an attorney, appear in court, or open their mail. When told of this situation, the probate judge scheduled a hearing to authorize the sale of the house. We like the possibility of selling before probate ends, but it seems strange. Don't we have to sue for partition (after probate) in order to sell? Does the judge even have the power to order or authorize the sale of the homestead? If the judge authorizes me to sell the house, won't I eventually need the two uncooperative heirs to sign the deed (as part owners)?
