Can you use land as collateral for a loan if it is owned by three siblings?

You can only mortgage your own interest in the property. Generally, the lender requires that all owners consent to a mortgage so that in the case of a default, it can take possession of the property by foreclosure. Therefore, it is likely the lender will require that the other owners join in the mortgage.
