He has to abide by the laws in the State you are in and that includes what the Will declares. If you are to get the house then you get the house. Usually Wills are probated to be sure that all personal/property taxes are paid off and this includes all creditors are paid in full. What is left is called "Residue of the Estate." You also have a right to a copy of the Will and if your brother refuses to give you one, then get a lawyer and demand one.

How do you relinquish your rights to inheritance and give this to your brother in AZ?

In many cases within estate documents there is a provision to disclaim your inheritance. Check the will or trust to see if this provision is in the document. However by doing so, if there are more than one sibling, your amount of inheritance may be added to the residue of estate and distributed as the document specifies. If you can not disclaim your share, you may accept it after inheritance taxes are paid and gift it to your brother under the laws of gifting, thus removing it from your estate and placing into your brother's estate. Follow gifting guidelines of your state and the IRS.
