if one sibling, of four, involved in inheritance upon sale of real estste, files bankruptcy, are the other three affected in any way?...can he force a sale to settle his debt?
2 Answers from Attorneys
A Chapter 7 Trustee can force a sale.
In a situation like this the 3 other siblings should make an offer to buy out the trustee for any unexempt property.
I had a case where the trustee found a buyer who was willing to buy a one-fifth interest in my client's parents farm; and the trustee was threatening to force a sale, which he may have been able to do. Mr. Hansen is right. The siblings should be making an offer to the trustee.
