Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If the two brothers disagree, that is between them, since either one of them can issue a lease to you and you can have rights to stay. You are not part of their dispute and they have to resolve the dispute between themselves. What you need to do is deal with the brother who is friendly with you and wants you to stay and help them get whatever you need to give them so you can renew your lease next year.
