Good Morning and thanks for using JUST ANSWER. I'm sorry to see that you are having this problem. It does not have a good solution. You can't take his name off of the contract without his consent. You could stop making payments and force the owner to cancel the contract, and then buy it back yourself, provided that the owner goes along. If you have a lot of equity you can sue for partition and a court will order the property sold. At least that would get you your half interest. Other than that, you have to make some kind of deal with the other party to get him to sign over his interest to you. Perhaps fin another co-buyer to buy him out.
I hope that this ANSWER is helpful and if you have no further questions that you will now enter a FIVE STAR RATING.
