Hi
My apologies for the delay.
Technically the Executors could try and force the sale of the properties.
However they would have to show that it is in the financial interests of your daughter for that to happen.
If they could do that then you may instead be able to "trade" properties - so that inly the agreed properties are sold and the others are transferred to your sole name
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
