Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

Any OWNER of real estate can go to court and force a sale of the residence if they no longer wish to own the property with the other people listed on the deed. The other owners can avoid a sale by buying out the owner who doesn't want to continue to own the property. If one owner files an Action for Partition without notifying the other owners, they can still request in their Answer to be able to buy the property out. The amount paid would be based on the market rate and the percentage of the property each person owned. Any loans would have to be refinanced without the name of the owner who is giving up the property.

If you're talking about an interested party whose name is ***** ***** the title, then it would help to know what their relationship to the owners is and why they're trying to sell the house.
