he is one of the 4
He is one of the 4 siblings so he ends up paying out $750 to himself ( one of the siblings) then gets $750 back from the $3000.00 estate vehicle purchace.
Thank you for the explanation. He apparently has the right to his share of the sales price. It is unusual for a person to be a buyer and a seller in the same transaction but this sounds like it is legal and fair.The cost of the vehicle is being split evenly, and he would pay the same amount even if he was not one of the 4 siblings. The fact that he will get a share of the proceeds as part of his share of the Estate is just a random happenstance. He is not required to give up his share or part of his share of the inheritance to evenly split the purchase price.I am sorry this is probably not the answer you had hoped for, but it would be unprofessional of me, and a disservice to you, not to provide accurate information. If he did not specifically disclaim part of his inheritance, there is no judge who would not approve of this arrangement, which would be considered fair under the law.I hope this information is helpful.You just posted right after I wrote the above. Didn't you write that he was paying $1500, not $750?
Yes, You are right he is paying $1500. $750 to 1 sibling and basically $750 to himself. Thank you
No. No will is involved or court.
