Hi lawanswer.com.au, My father has passed away and left a beach property. My sister is the executor pf will for the deceased estate and is doing everything she can to stop me from buying the property that she has stated she has no interest in. The property has been valued by professional valuer for probate, 2 real estate agents, 2 banks and, of course, there is the council rates notice. In short the property is valued at around $1.25m. She offered to sell it and I offered to buy it (as my part of the estate as a beneficiary ). She then did a back flip, declined my offer and said it was worth $1.4m - so I gave her 5 months to sell it - the best offer was "verbal" at $1.3m. I offered to match the net price of that offer and rounded it out to $1.28m. The estate solicitor now said I can have it for $1.38m net effectively valuing the property now at over $1.41m. Over 2 years, I have agreed to the executors asking price twice... she then declines my offer and continues to up the price. Is it possible to appoint an administrator so rational, logical and meaningful discussions could resolve this matter? Thanks for your time.
