If the property is in trust, you cannot borrow against the property itself. The trust owns the property, not any one of the siblings, and as such you cannot borrow against the property to buy them out. You would have to somehow dissolve the trust to remove the property and then the siblings would have to agree to the loan so you can pay them off and you would be then liable for the loan on the property. It can be done, but it is not simple to use the trust property for a loan to buy off the other beneficiaries as it does not belong to you or the beneficiaries, it belongs to the trust.
