Republic of Ireland Law Questions Answered by Experts
1. YOur sibling can oppose the order for sale, I regret to say. However, he will not be successful in this course of action, as a court will not "lock in" a co-owner into ownership. Secondly, you should speak with a solicitor to formally write to your sibling. Additionally, I would recommend that you negotiate informally with him to seek a resolution to the difficulty. Thirdly, you can seek to charge him rent, but be aware that he will most likely suggest that you put a tenant into your share of the house. Fourthly, if he refuses to pay the additional rent, there is nothing you can do as he is an owner of the property and in practice, this means he doesn't have to pay rent to live there, as an owner does not have to pay rent. It is up to you to live there as well if you want to use the house.
