In most cases the executor of a will by law has to liquidate all nonexempt assets to pay creditors. State probate laws determine which property can be sold to pay the deceased's debts. If it is thought an executor is mishandling an estate, the concerned party should seek legal counsel.

Can the executor sell property if he is the oldest child but only one child does not consent?

The Executor was specifically named by the the deceased to be their representative. and handle the matters of the disposition of their estate. As long as the Executor is abiding by, and adhering to, the wishes and instructions expressed in the will of the the deceased, they are acting with the 'good faith' expected by the deceased, and the law. However, this does not preclude dissatisfied heirs from challenging in court the actions of the Executor. Be aware, however, that the if the challenge is going to defend against it will be done so from the remaining proceeds of the estate and can therefore, have the effect of depleting the estates assets. Better that the heirs should consult with one another before this point is reached and try to come to some kind of mutual resolution of their perceived differences.
