Good afternoon. I am Loren, a licensed attorney and I look forward to assisting you.
Where a property has co-owners, any of the owners may petition the court for what is known as a "partition".
The demand for partition must be granted by the Court to such plaintiffs -- although the details of the order can vary widely. The "order" for the sale is typically an Interlocutory Judgment of Partition by Sale, either issued soon after the lawsuit is filed but sometimes not until all of the financial and legal issues are resolved.
It is also possible that the other owners may agree to refinance and buy out the owners who wish to sell.
