The only way to get them to sell it if they are not agreeing to do so is to seek judicial intervention. In other words you have to file a petition or a complaint in court to have the court order the sell of the property. A partition and sale in Michigan real estate law provides that any party that co-owns a piece of property with one or more other party has a right to divide, or partition, the property when they no longer wish to own it. A partition can either be voluntary or court-ordered, depending on whether or not the parties get along well enough to negotiate their own partition with the aid of their attorneys. Since most properties cannot be partitioned, the court orders the sale of it. We can discuss more if you want to do so.
