A: You cannot adversely possess against Tenants In Common, which apparently all of you are. Any owner can demand a Partition Action to sell it and divide the proceeds. You can only give your 1/3 Interest to your Daughters, and then they become Tenants In Common with your Sisters. You might wish to offer them something to sign a Quit Claim Deed.
