No, the percentage of ownership that each person has doesn't give them greater rights over the property than another owner has. So whether you have 1% or 99%, you have equal rights to the property with other owners.
.
Now you could force a sale of the property and buy them out through a lawsuit called a "partition action". You would then only have to buy out their additional interests at auction so as to become the sole owner if you chose to do so.
