Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
What you are talking about is a "joint tenancy with right of survivorship". If you decide to sell your half to someone, that will sever the joint tenancy and convert it into a "tenancy in common" where both parties own 50% and it would pass down to their heirs if they die.
So yes, there is nothing that would prevent you from selling your half without informing the other owner as that is your right.
Yes, as I said, you don't have to have permission of the other owner to sell... You an sell your 50% to anyone you want to and just transfer your interest to them via a quitclaim deed.
