Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good morning,I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
In order to sign the deed over to a buyer, unless you have a valid Power of Attorney allowing you to sell the property on your partner's behalf, both you and your partner will have to sign all the sale paperwork. This also included the listing paperwork for the Realtor that you hire to list the property.
You have little choice but to either locate him and get his cooperation in the sale, or you can file an action in court for Partition and get a court order allowing you to sell the property without his consent and cooperation. A commercial real estate attorney would be able to help you with the Partition lawsuit if one becomes necessary.
