The heirs are us ( the children) and my mother.
My mother entered into a contract with a thrid party to lease the property left by my dad.
We (the children) have not even seen/signed the contract.
He have not yet partitioned the estate. The property is still under my parents name because we dont have money to pay Estate tax.
my question is, is this a valid contract signed ONLY by my mom? Can her signature in the contract represent us?
should we (the children) be a signatory as well since we co-own the property with our mom?
Lastly, my mother did not apply for a business permit for the lease.
NOTE: I have no intention to put my mom in a bad legal position BUT we feel the contract signed by her only favors the tenant. I am finding a way if we can redo the contract that is beneficial to both the tenant and my mom.
Thanks in advance
