It is quite simple really, those who want to keep the house either buy you out, or raise finance to buy you out, or the house is sold. If they do not accept that, then you need to apply to Court for an order for sale which you should get.
Thank you for that. If my father has stated in his will that the house is not to be sold but is to stay in the family - how much weight does this hold. We benificiaries have 14 children between us and this would cause mayhem to that generation.
Also if just say only one of us wanted to sell our share and the others did not. Would that be a problem for the one who wanted to sell their share if it went to court.
Is the law the same in Ireland - given that this property is in Ireland.
many thanks for your help
It really depends on the exact wording, but it is unlikely to be that rigid. Further, even one beneficiary can force a sale.
Finally, I cannot imagine the law is much different in Ireland, but cannot confirm that. You would need an Irish lawyer.
