Can one heir make another heir vacate property?

My grandfather died over nine years ago. He had no will and a lawyer became executor of the estate. Upon his death he left tax bills and also funeral bills because he had no insurance. He had five children. My uncle owned a portion of the property and two of the other siblings gave him their portion leaving only my mother and my aunt with seperate portions. There were taxes owed that had not been paid since my grandfather's death that my mother paid off and there was also a funeral bill that my mother made payments toward and my uncle with the most shares paid off. Now my uncle is stating that he wants my mother to leave the home because he paid off the funeral bill. Does he have a right to force her to leave? She has not signed any paperwork stating that she gives him her portion of the estate and neither has my other aunt.
