Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: I have inheritance 1/10 of my father's home located in Orlando Florida. My brother is the the other half owner on the title. My brother made a proposal through his lawyer that he will buy my 2 sisters and my half sister and her daughter out for 20.000 .however he decided to çlose me out of the proposal and not offer me NO MONEY. THE WILL STATED I AM1/10 ONWER.WHAT IS MY RECOURSE. CAN THE LAWYER AND MY BROTHER DO THAT
JA: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?
Customer: No his lawyer contacted me and my sisters however his lawyer got back to me to let me know my brother will not extend the proposal to me. I know u can't just discard an individual of a will because u feel like it
JA: Have you talked to a FL lawyer about this?
Customer: No I am trying to see what is my recourse on this situation. Help
JA: The Real Estate Lawyer will be able to walk you through that. Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: The original will that my dad showed me when he was alive is not the the same will that exist now. I think my half sister went there and while he was on his death bed change the will . I suspect foul play.But I am very sure he did not want my brother to have the house.

Barrister, Expert

Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and I will do my best to help with your situation.

.

I know your question is important, but there may be a short delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply

.

I have read your post and I am sorry to hear you are having to deal with this situation as I realize it can be frustrating and confusing.

It wouldn't be mandatory for your brother to buy you out if he only wanted to buy out the other shares to give himself a 90% interest in the house.

.

But even with only 10%, you have every right to use and live in the house if you choose to or sell your interest to anyone who might want to buy it.

.

So even if he owned 90% you still both have exactly equal rights to use and enjoy the property.

Further, if you really wanted to hold his feet to the fire, as an owner, you have the right to file suit for "partition", which is where a judge orders a sale of the entire property at public auction. So if he wouldn't buy you out, you can force a sale of the entire property at public auction and cash out your interest that way.

Unfortunately, I am not allowed to represent customers from the site or recommend anyone personally under my independent consultant agreement with JustAnswer. However, these are a couple of sites that we attorneys actually use if we need local counsel in a state where we aren't licensed. Further, customers have consistently reported good results with these sites:

.

www.martindale.com

.

www.lawyers.com

.

They screen their attorneys based on geographic location, area of practice, time in practice, cost and customer reviews.

Customer
