Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney whowill try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply,but rest assured, I am working on your question.
In order to force a sale, you would have to file a legal lawsuit called a "partition action" in your local court and the judge would then issue an order for the house to be sold, either at a public auction immediately or through a realtor and then public auction later if the realtor can't sell it.
This is an absolute right that can not be denied, so it isn't a question of whether it will work, but just how soon you get the order from the judge.
But if you aren't familiar with filing your own legal actions, I would suggest talking to a local real estate or even a divorce attorney to get their help in filing the action.
