When you say adopt the process discussed do you mean, he can force the sale if he doesn't like the amount I offer him, and if someone is willing to offer more than me, that bidder can buy the house ?
As long as he out, and doesn't come back. I dont care. I will fix it, sell it and give him his share. If he can find a higher bider I dont care.
As the administrator I am in charge of putting the names on the deed, but how do I claim it for myself ? Or is putting my name on the deeds, " claiming it " . I think if I just go ahead and claim it for myself and have a legal document saying I will pay my brother half the amount of the house after I have fixed it, that will be my best bet. He doesnt have any money to take it to court nor does he have a job. I been the administrator since early last year.
