    diferent laws in different state , general rule is no , they have to buy you out at your agreed reasonable value and must give you a reasonable time when they offer  iether way it will cost them.get an attorney to make sure its all done legaly after all you ar at home and might have been helping out your parents and they wherent home.

    Every state has laws for how to distribute belongings if the deceased didn't leave a will.  Unless the brothers and sisters have a document or a legal judgement making them owners of the house, they can't evict you.

    you NEED a solicitor/attorney in the place where your parents lived [and, presumably, where the house is].  Do NOT take advice from anyone who isn't in the area and isn't an attorney. Fools make up what they think the law is, based on where they are -- but if you are NOT there, what they say is questionable at best.  -- grampa

    If the house is jointly owned by you and all your brothers and sisters,  yes there  is a chance they can apply for 'vacant possession' and have you out so the property can be sold.  You need a solicitor.

    Michael, I'm assuming that you lived with your parents and took care of them until their deaths.  Unfortunately, if neither of your parents had a will and they died intestate, then the state can come in and decide that the parents' holdings will be divided equally in value by all of the survivors.  In some states, the state will absorb all of the estate if people owed back taxes and had other debts that have to be paid.  You can get an attorney to try to help you, but the sad reality is that yes, you can be moved out of the house and it will be sold at its current market value.  If you have the money to buy out your siblings' portions (which is doubtful), you could possibly talk them into allowing you to keep the house, but if that's not the case, be prepared to gather up your personal belongings and start looking for a place to live.  Also, be aware that your siblings can also come in and take inventory of everything in the house that belonged to your parents.

    If you are not wanted, why would you want to be there?

    With no will the probate judge will have to appoint an administrator. The administrator will have to deal with that question and most likely have to have the judge agree with any decision like the removal of sibling from the family home. You would need a very strong reason to do so.

    No, no will means the judge decides. Even with a will you could contest it.
