Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. 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.


Her moving out will have zero effect on her ownership interest. If she owns 20% of the house, she owns 20% of it whether she lives there or not. Whoever told her that was misinformed.


But he can't legally force her to move out if she doesn't want to go if she is an owner on the deed since all owners have the exact same right to use and occupy the premises..
