Legal Question in Real Estate Law in California

Can a living family trust protect my mother.s property once the bank owns it back after no one bid on it at auction? The property was included in the trust to be divided equally and my other 2 siblings said no we are letting it go to foreclosure 2 against 1 democracy rules. I have tried to keep the property but my sister is in control of all my mothers money and does not give any accounting of it.
