Expert:  JGM replied 3 years ago.
You have possession of the land but no title so you have no rights at all. The ownership of the land passed with your father's estate.

Who inherited the estate?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
My mother died 2010. Myself & three siblings. In dispute over some of the land
Expert:  JGM replied 3 years ago.
So the estate including the land now passes to the four children?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Yes.
Expert:  JGM replied 3 years ago.
That is your answer. The land is owned equally unless and until the siblings agree to transfer to you for a price or otherwise.
