Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.
All siblings have an equal interest in the estate, and in all of the properties or assets that the estate has left behind. Therefore, any transfer of assets, such as a signing off on the real property has to be done by ALL of the siblings and anyone who may have an interest in the estate. Assuming the mortgage won't create a larger or sole interest in the property. A sibling can, however, purchase via foreclosure and short sale from the estate.
