Will directs land to be divided. Can it be subdivided?

Customer Question

We have a land that has 3 family members on it and the Will states that it is divided in the parts and one of the member has 2/3 of the land. Can we sub-divide it?
This is in Seabrook New Hampshire
I have not talked to a lawyer yet.
We want to sub-divide it in 1/3.

Any co-owner of the property can file a partition lawsuit to force the division of the property.
If a partition is filed, the judge will require that the property be equally/equitably divided between the three owners, and then legal descriptions will have to be obtained to effectuate the division.
