My wife's dad has passed, and her widow mother lives alone in ancestral house.
The will says that 50% of the property is my mother-in-law's ---- and in the remaining 50%, MIL has 16%..and the 3 sisters each have 1/3 of the remaining 34%...in other words, each sister has about 1/10 of the property.
My MIL wants to sell property and move to a flat, but one of the sisters is not willing to sign the power of attorney to hand over her share so the property can be sold as a whole.
In case she doesn't sign the POA, is there anything stopping my MIL from selling the 90% of the land (her 2 other daughters will gladly sign the POA giving their parts of their mom).
Also, if she can do that, does it matter which 10% of the land the problem sister gets? IN other words, would it be up to my MIL to give the problem daughter any piece of land as long it is 10%?

so just to be sure:
1. the property CAN be sold if needed
2. it is up to my MIL to decide which 10% she gets?
