Do you know if anyone has filed probate for your mother's estate? It sounds as if your brother may have done so.

You do have rights and you must bring them up to the Probate Judge assigned to your case.

Given the questions you have presented, I strongly suggest you contact a local probate litigation attorney to discuss your rights and options. You must act quickly or you will lose your right to protect your home forever.

Only people with title can sell property legally. They would have to open a probate action and have letters issued, and obtain permission from the court to sell property that belonged to the probate estate.
