Good morning. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
Do you have any written agreements with the co-owner boyfriend?
So long as you are on the deed, the property may not be sold without your consent (and signature) and you are owed your share of the proceeds, corresponding to your percentage ownership. If you own one half then that is the share of the proceeds to which you are entitled.
If your boyfriend does not wish to share the proceeds then you can refuse to sign to release the escrow. Also, any check will be issued to both owners, unless you direct otherwise in writing. So, unless your boyfriend forges your signature he can not deposit or otherwise negotiate the check.
If you have no further questions, and have not yet done so, please remember to leave a favorable rating (Excellent or Good) so that I am credited by JustAnswer for assisting you. A bonus is not required, but is always appreciated.
