Asked on: 8/11/13, 9:04 pm

My friend lived and worked with his father. Father passed away. Estate is in probate, executor being pulled from sister and given to brother. Neither siblings live in father's home. Sister has taken items, brother changed locks on the house and locks my friend in at night. He can't leave the house or take his dog out to urinate(obviously illegal.) Brother has also told my friend no one can come to the house. House will more than likely be sold. Brother and sister trying to keep my friend from his share of the estate. Brother wants to close the probate without doing inventory, saying there is nothing of value. But there is. Brother has niece posted up at the house, she has key but if he leaves she will lock him out. What recourse does my friend have? Brother is trying to get full authority to administer under Independent administration of estates act.
