Thanks for your question.
You cannot sell the property without agreement of your two sisters.
If you wish to sell and your two sisters do not you can only then do so with a court order.
Any questions or queries?
Happy to assist further.
The court has a wide discretion in such cases. You should instruct a solicitor to make an application to court under section 14 of the trusts of land and appointment of trustees act 1996, to ask the court to order a sale. Any person who is a trustee of land or has an interest in property, which you are/do, subject to a trust of land may apply to the court for an order.

Your original question was could you sell your share .
The answer is yes if you can find someone who wishes to purchase a third share when their name cannot be recorded on the title.
In terms of forcing sale of the whole property that s much easier - in fact the court has only a very limited discretion and in a case such as this the sale WILL be ordered.
Yours tarting point is to write to your sisters telling them that you require that they buy you out or the property is sold - and that if not then you will apply to the court for an order for sale and ask that they pay your costs.
very roughly on average between three and five months
