Q: How do I sell my interest in property in Kern County I own with my sisters? They won't talk to me so I can't ask them
The property was purchased in the early 80's. My parents out us kids on the deed(?) so we all owned it. My mom died in 1989. My dad died in 2003. My step sister says the land us her moms and my dad wanted me to sign a quit claim. I know that's a lie.
My father and his wife took the old mobile home off the land and bought a new one but I was told by my step sister that I have no claim to it.
I just want to sell my interest and walk away. I need the money for my daughter's college tuition to UW Seattle.
My sister's aren't speaking to me so I cant get their help
I know it's not a lot of money but I haven't gone to the property since dads funeral in 2003 and my family doesn't get along.
Just need to sell or be bought out ASAP.
Am I allowed access to the entire property even if i only have a 15% to 20% interest in it?
I suggest you contact a real estate attorney in Kern county regarding a petition of the property, in the hope that your attorney will be able to negotiate an out of court monetary settlement.

A: Jonathan meant to say “petition for partition of the property.” A partition is a judicial proceeding where you can request and a judge will order a forced sale of the property so that you can get your money out of the property. It’s available to you regardless of your limited interest in the property. It will take time and cost money but a Kern County probate attorney should be able to help you.
