You forgot to mention a critical piece of info. How, precisely, is the property titled?
if the property is owned jointly by the sisters, you may have a problem.
is sis willing to buy wife out? if no, you can try to se;; the undivided half interest. but partial interests are EXTREMELY difficult to sell, and when they do sell, they sell for huge discounts.
threatening a partition might get sis’ attention. if that fails, actually filing the lawsuit should be enough to get the deal done. it is in nobody’s interest to see the lawsuit through to its conclusion.
