Thank you Clare - thanks for staying with me. I apologize, but I'm still unclear on the concept of the restriction.
I interpret Article 4 of "Title absolute" to mean that my "written consent" controls only the "registration" of the estate by the 'proprietor" (now the executor of the will) and not to control the act of disposing of the estate, which could be before or after the registration. Do you agree? Of course a diligent buyer would not allow any payment to be made until after receipt of my written consent, so registration after disposal is highly unlikely. Essentially this means that a deal won't be consummated until after I sign the written consent.
However, if an Order for Sale is inevitable, without any restriction on the proprietor, perhaps my "written consent" should be called a "written acknowledgement of notification" - acknowledgment that I am aware that the property has been sold, or is about to be sold. Is that the true intent of the restriction - to ensure that I won't find out about a sale after the event?
Is the seller of the property required by law to advise me of the value of the sale, and therefore the value of my 25% ownership?
Is the seller of the property required by law to advise me of the basis for the amount agreed upon with the buyer? In other words, how do I know that the seller has not made a deal with a friend for a low price in exchange for a kickback?
Thanks again for clarification.
