No. After the heirs probate the estate and receive their distributions, they may sell the property. Or a creditor may probate the estate, file a claim, be reimbursed and, after all bills of the deceased and the estate are paid, distribute what remains to the heirs.

Start by checking what type of easement he has and whether it gives him the right to subdivide his land and keep the same easement. I'm surprised he's not responsible to maintain the easement. You may want to take the deed regarding the easement to an attorney to review.

I have a mobile home I bought from them and part of the contract states I have to have it moved before the end of feb 2020. They are now messaging family members stating they are trying now to do everything they can to keep me from relocating my house.
If the contract requires you to move your mobile home before the end of February 2020 why are you here today, some 62 days early?

Title company says the letter isn't enough but no real good explanation as to why. Maybe it's because the address... Read more »
Title companies often screw up bankruptcy questions, but I think they're right here. Until the case is closed, the home remains property of the bankruptcy estate and isn't yours to sell.
