Customer Question
I own a house...

I own a house with a business partner it’s 50/50 split, it’s been on market for 4.5 years to sell, how can I legally get my business partner in this property to agree on a price reduction ? I want to reduce asking price by 36k and he wouldn’t sign, what’s my options?

I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

Do you have a written agreement about how the house was to be treated?
