How can I get my brother to buy me out of the house that we inherited from our father?
Question Details: My father passed away a year ago. He lived in PR with a house that was paid off. The house is left to the 4 of us, my brother and 3 of us girls. He is a doctor and we 3 have moderate jobs and are just making ends meet. My brother decided to upgrade the house to make it a summer home but prior, I asked him to buy me out. He said that he couldn't right now yet he wants to renovate the house. I pointed out that the money he was going to spend could be used to buy me out. So far he has spent about $80,000 fixing the house and still refuses to buy me out. He said that when he has the time or money he will. Meanwhile, I have no means to travel to visit PR often. Also, he said that when he does buy my share, he will based it on the price prior to the renovations. What can I do?
