We have 122.5 acres of land we are selling to an individual

Customer Question

we have 122.5 acres of land we are selling to an individual Who wants to write a single check. However, the land is deeded to myself an three brother. I and another brother are the administrators. He wants to go to the court house and have the names changed on the tax roll. Is this legal? I'm thinking we need to convey the deed to the new owner and have him write 4 checks of equal amount to us 4 owners of the land. My brother is trying to avoid a lawer in the mix. What are all the things we should do to get everything filed properly. I live in Florida by the way.

By continuing, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms. Who wants to go to the court house and have the names changed "tax toll" - the seller, or, your other brother who is the administrator? What do you mean by administrator - is this land in probate, or a trust? This is not an answer, but an information request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. Thank you in advance.
