Hello, and thanks for submitting this question. Unfortunately , all titleholders must consent to a sale of the property AND sign the deed to the buyer. If all of them cannot be persuaded to sell, then the remedy is to file a suit for partition of the property. If the property can't be physically divided, the court will order the sale with the proceeds divided among the owners. A commissioner will be appointed by the court to execute the deed. I know that this is involved and expensive, but it is the only way a buyer can obtain clear title to the property. Here is more information on the subject of Partition http://www.marconews.com/news/2005/apr/20/ndn_it_s_the_law__partition_lawsuit_can_force_the_/nformation
