There are five equal beneficiaries to a will - all siblings. The estate is mainly just a house and the will states it is to be sold and divided equally. Executors are two of the siblings. One beneficiary has a PIA that won’t be finished until 2020. They have requested that the house is not sold until then, to protect their inheritance. They have suggested renting the house in the meantime. Do the other beneficiaries have to agree to this? From the PIA point of view is the beneficiary deemed to have inherited from the date of death of the parent, or from the date the proceeds are actually divied up? One beneficiary is against the idea (sell while the market is buoyant), one (an executor) is happy to go along with it, I have no idea about the other two beneficiaries yet. Can anyone advise from financial and legal points of view, what happens in this sort of a situation. Thanks.
