Can they force the sale of his house which is will be 1/2 owned by my brother?
My brother and I will inherit 1/2 of my fathers’ house when he dies. I understand that I would have to tell my trustee if I am in bankruptcy. We want to improve the house before we sell. Can the trustee force the immediate sale of the house if my brother owns half?
Yes, the trustee can force the sale of the house if you and your brother do not cooperate.
The best thing to do, if it comes to this, is to have your brother buy out the trustee’s equity in your share of the house.
