Assuming that your Mother's Will is legal and valid -- meaning that
your Mother was legally competent at the time and that the Will was
properly drawn up, executed and witnessed, under the laws of your State
-- (assuming of course that you were incuded in the will as a co-owner
of the house along with your other siblings) your rights to the house
are exactly the same as the rights of your siblings... no more and no
This means that your siblings can ask any price they want for their
shares of the house -- and, they can put any conditions on the sale
that they wish to abd sell it to anyone they want -- but all the
siblings (including you) must agree on the terms and conditions of the
sale. However, your son (or any other buyer) to buy the house.
Your siblings, likewise, are not obligated to sell their shares -- to you, your son -- or anyone else.
Since the house is now under shared ownership
, you, and each of your
siblings, has an equal say in what happens to the house -- as long as
each of you remains an owner.
Your being a part owner of the house does not give either you or your
son any right to modify (or even live in) the house without the consent
of the other owners
-- your siblings.
On the other hand, none of your siblings (whether singly, or as a
group) have the right to sell -- or make any modifications to -- the
house without your
permission, and that of the other siblings.
So, the botXXXXX XXXXXne is -- if you want the house (and don't want to put
a trailer on the property) pay your siblings the $70,000 -- or
negotiate some other (mutually acceptable) deal with them.
Remember, if you buy the house, one share of the money goes to you.
The other alternative (if the house is not sold, but you want to
continue to live there) would be for you to work out a rental
arrangement with your siblings -- along with negotiating any desired
modifications to the house.
