Real Estate Lawyer: Roger, Lawyer replied 1 year ago
Yes, you have rights, and you can't have your property or property interest held hostage. But, if you and your partner cannot agree on whether to sell the property, the only thing you can do is file a partition lawsuit. A partition suit either (1) forces the sale of the entire property, and the proceeds therefrom are split equally between the partners after all debts are retired (bank liens, taxes, etc.) or (2) divides the property equally between the partners and each take title to a divided 1/2 of the property (this really only works with raw land/agricultural land with no home located on it).

Usually, filing a partition lawsuit is the last resort and only done in the event that the parties cannot reach some type of agreement to split or sell the land. However, you certainly have that right and you can file the action force the sale or division of the property if all else fails.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
