My wife, her sister and her brother inherited a house from their father upon his death in 1997. After Probate they attempted to sell the property, but were told by a lawyer that, because the brother had an unsettled tax dispute, the IRS had placed a lien against the property and that they could not sell the poperty.
The tax dispute is still unsettled, the house is deteriorating, and my wife and her sister are extremely frustrated.
What can be done so that my wife and her sister are able to realize their share of their inheritance?
