Painter used latex over oil on woodwork

We bought a house where all of the woodwork and doors have latex paint over oil and much of the paint is PEELING. It would be impossible to remove all of the latex paint. Can I just sand/scrape off the peeling parts, prime and paint?

Yep, scrape, sand, feather sand and then prime with an oil primer and then you can use a latex finish. I do not envy you a simple job turns into a hassle do to lack of prep.
