There are 6 adult children. Both parents have passed away

Customer Question
and there are 3 different...
There are 6 adult children. Both parents have passed away and there are 3 different properties with houses on them. 3 want to sell and 3 want to continue to rent out....one of the properties one of the brothers is living in and the county has said that the siblings have 30 days to come up with a plan to get all of the junk that he has brought in, out of there, or they will start charging them $500 a day. My husband, one of the siblings, can't go to the house (that he owns 1/6 of) because his brother that' s living there called the police on him because he wanted to start cleaning it up to put it up for sale. We don't know what to do at this point. Please help.

This seems like a very crucial matter for you, and your questions and issues suggest that an in-depth conversation might best suit your needs. If you are interested, you can request a call by clicking on the "Call Me" button on your page.

Sorry have to wait until my husband is home so he can participate in the convo, but we are home at different times...so will just write it...all six children's names are on the deed of all properties ...only the brother is a tenant...there is no lease agreement that we know of. He was living with his mom and when she passed away they wanted to rent the property out and it took forever and bribing of 2500 dollars to get him out, and then he just moved in with his dad about 6 months before he passed away land pays $500 a month to live there..it was 200 but they told him he needed to pay more rent so they gave him a raise in what he was being paid to "maintain" house and attached rentals and collect rent.a raise of $300. He has been there now about 2 1/2 years. The property has gone through probate..the junk is like 6 inoperable boats that he says he will make sea worthy and 2 camper tops, small odd and ends that he has bought at thrift stores, and things left from his parents before they passed away.

The notice came registered mail from the county with pictures of back yard

Hi Kathryn,

When I said I'd be available until about 8PM your time, I was basing that on the state you said is related to the question---Florida, and not the west coast. I do not work to 11PM EST.

Your situation is sufficiently complex that my ability to understand the myriad facts and parties involved is not practical to obtain in written form, as is evidenced by your attempt to respond to my 7 initial requests for information. Your expectation of help is entirely dependent on me having a tremendous amount of information---information that I am not prepared to spend a week or more trying to ferret out through writing back and forth (I would note that this conversation has already spanned nearly 48 hours).

If you would like me to call so that I can get the information I need and provide some assistance, I am happy to do that. If you no longer want a call, then I will opt out of the question.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Doug
