Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
If you want to sell and ex doesn't, and you are both on the deed, then you can force a sale of the property by contacting a local real estate attorney and filing a "partition action" in the local court where a judge will order the property sold. Typically they will order it appraised and then listed with a realtor for a few months and then go to public auction if it doesn't sell privately. That is unless ex wants to buy you out and refinance the loan in his name only..
This is an absolute right that can't be denied as you can't be forced to continue owning a property if you want to sell and cash out your interest.
