http://nycourts.law.com/CourtDocumentViewer.asp?view=Document&docID=46923 Justice Phelan PLAINTIFF’S ACTION under Article 15 of the Real Property Actions and Proceedings Law sought a determination of claims of interest in property disputed over by several estates. Plaintiff executor, who sought permission to effectuate a contract to sell the property, claimed title to the property on grounds that plaintiff’s decedent purchased the one-third shares in the property held by his brother and sister prior to their deaths. The executrix of the estate of the husband of the decedent’s deceased sister alleged that because the decedent’s sister died intestate, her three children were additional parties in their individual capacities. The executrix also contended that if the sale is to go forward, a referee should be appointed to conduct it and deposit the proceeds into the court. Pursuant to Civil Practice Law and Rules �325(e), the court, noting that at least six estates have actual or potential interests in the property, transferred the dispute among the estates to the Nassau County Surrogate’s Court.
