Answer:

Ownership as indicated by a deed is a separate matter from those named on a loan on the property. Only he persons named as responsible parties on the loan are responsible to pay the loan, regardless of who is named on the deed. It is possible the brother may contract privately with the other brothers, such as through a promissory note, that they will pay the borrower brother as contribution to his payments on the loan.
