They need to agree on a price between the 3 of them and then have a new Quit Claim or Warranty Deed drawn up and recorded conveying the 1/3 interest to the other 2. If it is going to be evenly divided, each would get half of their 1/3, if just one other is buying that child out , then that buyer would have 2/3 and the other 1/3. I would specify in the deed as to how they are taking title, tenants in common or joint tenants with the right of survivorship, etc.

Put the interest on the market and sell it, depending on how the deed was written, it may not be marketable or able to be sold.

I am going through the exact same. Realtor and property attorney have informed me that the child that wants to sell his/her portion will have to reach an buyout agreement with the other 2 children. Some kind of buyout dollar amount. A specific contract will then need to be drawn up indicating the child is giving up his/her portion in exchange for the buyout amount. Once that is done a new deed to the house will need to be signed by only the remaining two(2) children with a stake in the house.

All documents will need to be notorized.

Hope this helps some.
