Call or go to the mortgage and conveyance office for the parish in which the house was located and find out who does own it. If your Mom or grandfather was an owner, then you need to hire a succession attorney.
The daughters can't do anything with the property that wouldn't be subject to the usufruct. In other words, it would be hard to find a buyer, other than perhaps another family member, that would purchase it knowing that the purchase would be subject to the grandson having a right of use.
Call the Sheriff for your parish, threatening to burn your house down, dealing drugs, harassing you and shaking you are all criminal offenses. Then after he is arrested, just have his camper pushed out onto the street.
We have had fair offers on the table but have been unsuccessful. One of the heirs is the administrator and he tried before closing succession to get everyone on board to either buy or sell to no avail.

There is no law requiring that you hold property for a minimum time before re-selling. However, tax consequences could differ on income/capital gains. You should address that scenario, and your specific circumstances, with your CPA.
Before we were married i bought a mobile home And put it on his land.both are fully paid for. I’ve known him/his family my whole life i just want this divorce to be as quick, painless, fair as possible.
Am I free to sell to get out from under the mortgage or does it have to go through probate before I can sell? His estate may be getting sued so I have been advised not to go through probate yet, but I don't want to be stuck with this mortgage to pay by myself.
My sincerest condolences on your loss. If your husband's name is on the title to the property, you will likely have to open his succession to sell the property. I would strongly recommend speaking with a probate attorney to discuss this matter with you further.
We bought 2 acres in St Tammany Parish, LA about 2 yrs ago that the neighbors have “helped themselves” to for several years prior.

If you are talking about "family...Read more »
