I'd agree if both rear wheels are squealing and have resistance to being turned then yes its likely to be a fault parking brake not fully releasing or possibly the shoes are worn out

its probably best to remove the brake discs and check the handbrake drum shoes condition to ensure that the shoes aren't not worn out and the mechanism moves and retracts freely

so applying some copper grease to the pivot points will be of help
