The Moneyist: My brother borrowed $100,000 from my father before he died—how do we get it back?

Dear Moneyist,

My father lent my brother $100,000 to help remodel his home. There was a promissory note for $53,000 signed. The rest of the money owed was acknowledged via email between my brother and father. When my father died, my two brothers inherited his property and an income generating business, while his three daughters received cash/liquid assets.

The problem now is trying to get the $100,000 from my brother that he owes the estate.

At this time, he can’t get a home loan or line of credit on his remodeled home as it is not finished and probably won’t be for several months.
