    Where are you located?

    Use of the word "society" to apply to home ownership or occupancy suggests the UK.

    This site is devoted to US law so we really can't help you if you are in the UK.

    If you are in the U.S., and the matter is still in probate court, the executor of the estate is responsible to ensure that the property is maintained until probate proceedings conclude.

    If you are in the U.S. and probate is resolved, such that this is now a co-ownership issue, not an estate issue, then you and your co-owners should attempt to negotiate an agreement for the division of and payment of household maintenance expenses. If you cannot agree, while you can take the matter to court, you are likely to increase animosity while incurring cost, and even with a judgment in hand you still need to enforce it. If you want to try to force the sale of the property you can sue for partition and sale, but that can be a costly process and you need to be prepared for the possibility (or, depending upon the facts, probability or inevitability) that you will have to move at the conclusion of that process.

    If you are not in the U.S., consult a lawyer in your nation with the full details of your situation.

    My father has passed away and we are 3 females in the house.
    Do either of the other two of you have any relationship to your father?

    Who are "they"? What does "we can make anyone cleaning it" mean?

    please help me what can i do
    We have no idea what your abilities are, and your post doesn't appear to raise a legal issue. Could you clarify what legal issue you think exists? In particular, what is the status of the probate of your father's estate? You should also identify your state.
