What Happens If All Heirs Don’t Agree?

If an heir does not agree with the division of property in an estate, they can file a lawsuit to force the court to intervene. They must prove that the executor or trustee failed to perform his or her duties. The court may order that the property be sold and the proceeds are divided between heirs. The heirs can also seek extreme remedies like the removal of the fiduciary.

In New York, the most common legal event is the administration of an estate. The administrator acts as a fiduciary and carries out the duties of an executor. They distribute the property to the heirs, nieces, nephews, and siblings.

Process of inheritance

The process of inheritance is often bittersweet. In many cases, an heir feels anger and frustration. However, the emotions must be managed and the heirs must realize their rights.


Intestacy laws vary from state to state. Generally, a person who dies intestate inherits a half share of the property. The rest of the property goes to other relatives. This can include siblings, aunts and uncles, and cousins. If no relatives can be found, the assets can be transferred to the state.

Requesting information about the estate

An heir can request information about the estate in writing. This can include documents such as the Will and the Letters of Administration. The heir must maintain a record of these requests. They can also file a complaint with the court for breach of fiduciary duty when the estate is closed.

Probate Process

If a person’s estate is in a revocable trust, or if there is no will, the administrator will have to go through the probate process. This process will take some time and a great deal of effort on the part of the estate’s trustee and executor. Various tax and court issues can slow down the process.
