do i have to let someone move in if they only own 10% of house
Unfortunately, the answer is yes unless there is some type of written agreement where the other person has given up their right to occupy the property, like with a lease. Whether a person owns 1% or 99%, they have a legal right to use and possess the property the same as any other partial owner in the absence of some written agreement stating otherwise.
