Cherry Hill, NJ asked in Real Estate Law for New Jersey

Q: Heirs do not want house sold in Will. Executor who is not named to receive anything won't agree what can be done

Heirs are sole beneficiaries. Both heirs agree to not sell house, they don't want the money but want to keep house. Both heirs are of sound mind. Executor who only over sees the Will refuses our wishes and is selling the house. I quote "I am Executor of the will, empowered with final decision". The house has no mortgage and executor earlier agreed the sell would not be our best interest. He also told beneficiary 2nd week of mother passing "your mother's belongings will be thrown out and the house will be sold". He is not at all working with us and has not given us a copy of will and is very vague of going on's. What can we do to save my mother's house
