Customer Question

in relations to the questions asked earlier. The property I mentioned in the prior questions was my dad's property who is deceased.

Since the property belonged to your dad or his estate after he passed and up until the time title is actually transferred, your siblings had not right to take these items from the home. The person handling your dad's estate can file a police report for theft against them. That person can also file a suit on behalf of the estate for civil conversion. If you are purchasing the house without these items, you will need to adjust your offer on the house downward accordingly.
