Complications can arise in sales of probate property when one or more family members live in the property. When a sibling asks another family member to move out of the property, this request brings with it, feelings of animosity, a power play, and past feelings that have remained unresolved.

Younger lawyers lack the basic understanding of creative solutions and will often take a case to trial, because they simply do not have creative solutions as part of their experience. When a case goes to trial, in most cases, all beneficiaries lose.
