Three brothers inherited a house, in joint tenancy with right of survivorship.
One brother quit claimed his third to our sister, which I think makes her a tenant in common of one third.
The sister's daughter now lives in the house, rent free.
The sister wants to spend several thousand dollars for a new roof.
The two brothers with joint tenancy do not want to spend the money for the roof or other major repairs.
Is there a legal document that could be prepared to ensure that she alone will be liable for any major repairs done without the two brother's permission?
If repairs are made by her without our permission, would the two brothers in joint tenancy be liable if a mechanics lien
is placed on the property?
The property is in Iowa, where the sister and my joint tenancy brother lives. I, the other brother in joint tenancy, live in Minnesota.
