My apologies for the wait.
The problem is that there is no rule that states that individuals have
to take care of a property co-owned by someone else. So it is all up to the people involved to work it out between them.
Normally, back in the old days, when two parties could not decide on what to do with the property and were equal owners, they would go to court to partition the property (if this was land).
The name survives. One can file a PETITION TO PARTITION (or something similar, such as a declaratory judgment
action) in the Supreme Court, and have the Court decide as to what is fair. The Judge may order what party has what duty to pay what (split 50/50), or, order the property to be sold and proceeds divided, or a party to be bought out over time. Whatever is equitable (fair).
However, the onus is on the party that wants to do this to file in Court and have this done, so it is a bit of work, I am afraid, and an attorney is best.
