My mom passed in October 2012 from pneumonia attributed to having Alzheimer's disease. She owned a house but the house is to be sold pay her nursing home bill. The rest will go to the lawyer and a supplemental needs trust for my handicapped sister. It's just the two of us. The lawyer recommended a realtor to sell the property. She found an invester willing to buy the house at a reduced rate because the neighborhood's not great and the house needs work. The lawyer refused to negotiate because the investor wanted to use and FHA loan putting only 3% down on the house. The lawyer says that the courts will not permit the house to be sold for less than 10% down. I want the house sold as soon as possible because I have to go out of my way (neither I nor my sister live there) to maintain it so it does not look abandoned. It's really putting a strain on me. Can the lawyer refuse a buyer that the realtor and I both would like to sell to? Buyers are hard to find because they will have to wait six to eight months for the contract to go through the courts. Bear in mind, I get nothing out of the sale although I have to keep the property clean. Any solution would be welcomed. Thanks.
