Hi and welcome to JA. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you tonight.
You have the right as an individual to purchase the house from a third party who purchsed it at foreclosure.
Here you are not buying it from the estate and your position as executor and those duties are really separate and unrelated to your purchase here as an individual.Based on what you present I do not see a problem with such a purchase.
You are paying more than they paid, that makes it appear to be a legitimate sale from a third party.Again that appears to be a separate legitimate purchase.
You are not hurting or even involving the estate or your duties as an executor.The estate here no longer owns the property it is a purchase from a third party.
Again I do not see a problem here with you buying the property from a third party who purchased it in foreclosure.
I appreciate the chance to help you.Please let me know if you have more here.It is not a problem.
Hi and thanks. My sister already sued the estate and me as executor twice to have her trust fund released. I did nothing wrong and ultimately went against my mother's wishes by giving my sister her trust fund in a lump sum. That is all behind us now, but things will never be what they once were. I don't want to give any reason to have new problems.
Overall anyone can purchase it here from a third party.You are acting as an individual.I cannot promise you that your sister may not object but you may have some great facts to assert if you have too.I mean its a legitimate sale for more than the third party paid.The estate really has no involvement in such a sale.
I am so sorry you have had to deal with sister here.I know it can be hard when relatives are involved.
But I think that you have the right to buy the property if you choose from a third party.Cannot see that she has grounds to claim anything improper.I wish you good luck with the sale.
I appreciate the chance to chat here.
Thanks Ray. Have a great night.
You too and good luck with the purchase.
If you can leave a positive rating when we are done it is always appreciated.
Thanks and I will.
