A: Your question does not make clear what is really going on. It sounds like the referee determined a price for the house to be divided as part of the property settlement. If that's the case, I'm not seeing that as a "taking" and is within the court's and referee's authority. You may continue to list the property with whomever you want, but remain responsible for obtaining the price set.
