How do I go about selling heir property

My dad has recently passed away. My siblings and I do not want the property (approx 3 and 1/4 acres). Very few of the original owners (my father's siblings) are left and what was left to their children has been lost due to non-payment of taxes.

Hi fgreen!

Welcome to forums!

If you want to sell off the property, you'll have to pay off the back taxes first. After the back taxes are cleared, you'll have to list the property in the market and check out if you can get buyers for your property.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.

sorry for you loss of your dad. You will need to go thru probate and have a excutive of the estate appoinment. Make sure there is no leins on the property, then you can sale the property. Find a great realtor to help you with the sale of the property. If you need a referral to one PM and I can hook you up with one. You may also want to contact a lawyer to make sure that everything is in order with the property and that ya'll have the right to sale it. goodluck

Hi dominiquejj,

You should immediately contact a real estate attorney and file a lawsuit in the court against the person who sold off the property. If you win the lawsuit, then you will be able to get back the property.

Thanks

Hi Guest!

Welcome to forums!

If someone else sells of the timber from the heir's property, it will be considered as illegal. The heir can take legal actions against that person.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.

My grandparents died intestate. How do I as one of many heirs start the process to force the sale of the property for the benefits of all of the heirs.

We are selling heir property. Is the spouse of a deceased heir entitled to the deceased heir's portion?

Hi Shelia,

There are chances that the spouse of the deceased heir is entitled to his/her share. Nevertheless, you should get in touch with a real estate attorney and take his opinion in this regard.

Thanks
