First of all this issue is concerning dividing land with a relative that built a house on my Grandparents land about 20 years ago. Currently mom has taken over the original house that on the 1.4 acres of land, but in order to satisfy my moms trust the land needs to be divided equally in half between two houses so that when my moms passes the land/house she is now the Grantee of can be sold and divided equally among her kids.
Question #1 : What do I have to do to smoothly get accurate estimates of a equal division of the 1.4 acres ? Who do I need to contact ? Can they give me the value of the divisions as well ?
Question 2: If we need too, can we force the relative to sell since the (second house) which is also on the same 1.4 acres except it was built after the primary house owner of the land which was my Grandfather, and is now my mother, the daughter of the original owner of the whole 1.4 acres. What do I have to do to proceed with something like that ?
I'm sorry for the long thread, I'm throwing these questions around in my head as the relative is not helping very much in the matter, but just started renovating her side ... I want to cover my bases before they start building fences.
Thank you ~ James
