An agreement between the beneficiaries is a separate matter. They would all need to agree. The administrator or administrators otherwise have a legal duty to distribute the estate equally according to Oklahoma law. Only if all 3 agree on a different distribution would the administrators have a duty to seek permission from the court to divide the property in a manner consistent with the agreement and contrary to Oklahoma law.I reviewed your prior question in regard to your current situation. Unfortunately, for a contract to be valid when it involves real property, it must be in writing. However, even despite having a valid contract, you expended funds for the benefit of the estate and are entitled to reimbursement for the value added to the property. Thus, you could seek to be reimbursed from the estate prior to distribution of estate property. That would mean that you perhaps would be the only distributee of property (depending on the value) or that you receive a larger share. This would give you leverage to work things out.In any case, you would best be served by retaining a local attorney that could ensure your rights are fully protected. Since probate will be necessary, the court will be involved, and given the complexity of your situation you should not attempt any remedy without an estate attorney in Oklahoma.
