You did not provide enough information for me to offer any answer to this question. Is the property in trust? Are each of these 35 people co-owners? Is the property in a probate estate? The underlying facts are important to understand what this "one person out of 35" could actually do.

I am not sure what you refer to, but you could bring a petition to partition the property to get the other person out of the picture, in effect buy that person out of his interest in the asset.

There are a number of ways, you need to sit down with an attorney to review all of the facts and deeds.

If the one person is personal representative appointed by the court. Do you honestly think that 35 people could all agree on anything?

You need to post more details. There are a LOT of reasons why one person would have control and others not. The easiest way would be for the person in control to legally authorize the second person. There are so many other possibilities, however, that your question cannot be answered further without more information.

    I don't know. Is there a trust? Is there a management agreement? Is it owned by an LLC? Is it apathy on the part of the other 34? If it is important, you will need to find a local real estate attorney and see if there is something filed that allows this.

    Usually one person is named as the person to control the assets. That said, that person has duties to the others. If you are not getting the information you are entitled to, have an attorney help you.

    You don't provide enough information to provide an answer but there are a number of possibilities: the person could be the executor of an estate that includes the property, the person could have been given that responsibility in the will, the person could have the largest percentage of ownership or control over the property, the person could be CEO of a company that owns the property. Bottom line, getting 35 people to agree on anything is nearly impossible; it's a good thing to have just one person responsible for the property.

    Will need more info to properly respond to this question. Whose property is it? Is it a part of an estate? If so, have the person in control been appointed as personal representative of an estate? Was there a will? Please provide as much info as possible for me to be able to answer this question properly.
