What is the name of your state? Louisiana
My mother-in-law is an heir to over 55 acres of property and has had her mobile home sitting on what is probably less than half an acre for about 7 years now. She is about to move in with us and we are going to rent her home out, but a few siblings (3 to be exact) are threatening to take her to court saying the majority of the siblings (which total 13) don't want the home rented. What can she do to have the small amount of this property her home is located on declared hers with deed and stop the nonsense? Also, if she has the land surveyed and does accomplish getting the deed, does that take away her right to the remaining acres? We would prefer not to have to go to court, is that the only way to remedy this situation? 5 or 6 of her other siblings think this is a mess and don't have a problem with her renting and don't even want to be involved. Also, the majority of the 55 acres is rented to a farmer for about $3000 a year, with property taxes of about $200 and there is no distribution of the remaining funds? What is the proper way to deal with that? Thanks a lot!

Your post is not clear as to who actually OWNS what. You say that she is an 'heir', then discuss the fact that their are 13 siblings... of who?? Are there really 13 heirs??

Once you have the ownership issue clarified, we might be able to help.

There are a total of 13 heirs to the property. My mother-in-law is one of those 13 who are on listed on the deed to the 55 acres of land. Thank you.

Has your mom inlaw thought about asking to have her 13th of the property where this home Is now located surveryed and legally transfered to her that 13th would just be a bit over 4 acres wich will make a nice size parcel should she ever wish to sell it . this way If she could get the others to just agree to doing this then they can still rent the land out . Perhaps the best thing is to talk with a attorney and see what the cost would be to do all the paperwork . see the house itself is her personal property. so like I said if she can get them to agree to legally signing off to her 4 acres then they can do as they see fit with the rest of the land . so consult with a attorney .
