I'm not sure what you are trying to ask. I would suggest that you discuss with your siblings openly.

Alan May answered:
Obviously, the four siblings need to agree on what is fair.

But it seems pretty simple. Let's presume that there is $200,000 after any mortgage is paid.

Since sibling 1 & 2 have incurred $10,000 each in expenses... for a total of $20,000. They should be repaid first... leaving $180,000 to be divided equally among the four. $45,000 each. ... more

In Maryland, Section 17-502(b)(1) and Section 17-505(b) of the Business Occupations and Professions Article, Annotated Code of Maryland specifies how the earnest money is to be handled. This law only governs how brokers are to handle EMD, not how an outside party can handle it. We have had at least one instance where a title company held the EMD, then only disbursed part of it, saying they kept a portion to cover their costs. Maryland law does not hold 3rd parties to the same standard that brokers are held to when it comes to earnest money. ... more

This has probably already been settled by now but here's the logic according to me. But you need to get a lawyer's opinion just to make sure.
If you sold the house outright for $270,000 each one of you would get $54,000, which is one-fifth of $270,000.
Therefore for you to get the house, you should pay each of the other four $54,000. Four times 54,000 is 216 - so you are correct.
Another way of looking at it is for you to buy the house outright from the trust for $270,000. Then the trust would pay each one of the five, including you, $54,000 from the proceeds of the sale. The net effect would be that each of the others received their $54,000 and you would have obtained ownership of the house for $216,000.
