Welcome! My goal is to do my very best to understand your situation and to provide a full and complete answer for you.
Good morning. Unfortunately, your daughter has only a couple of options if the co-owner will not deal with this voluntarily. The first is the suit for partition which will force the sale of the house. The second is a suit against the ex for her share of the cost of the home. With the benefits of ownership so too come the burdens. So, your daughter can sue the co-owner for her share of all the costs, including the mortgage. Then, once she gets a judgment, she can put a lien on her ex's interest in the house and then foreclose on that lien to collect her judgment...thereby gaining ownership in that manner.
