Hey Lisa! Thank you for reaching out to us. To block the sale of a property that is owned by an heir, legal situations may arise. Whether it's by contesting a will, if that is still an option, depending on your timeline, or by filling a cease and desist order, both situations require an attorney's expertise. Try contacting legal representation with your particular situation or ask a real estate attorney for clarifications. Regardless, the information you found here should not be used as legal advice as we do not have the expertise necessary for legal advice. Contact an attorney, and they will be able to provide you with the information necessary for your situation and guide you in your pursuit.
