You should get a deed of the property from your brother (have your lawyer prepare and send it to him or ask his lawyer to prepare it, if he has one), and, once that is done, the Probate Court is no longer involved, and you can bring an eviction action in District Court after following the proper procedures there. Good Luck. IF your brother refuses, file a motion in Probate Court asking for the deed.
