Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. 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.

.

When you added her to the title, you made her a half owner of the trailer, even if you didn't intend to do so. If she won't agree to sell, then your only recourse is to file a lawsuit called a "partition action" and have a judge enter an order to sell the home at public auction to the highest bidder. That way you can either buy her out or she can buy you out if you wanted to keep it, or you can allow a member of the public to buy it out.

.

Any local civil attorney can assist with filing the motion for partition, so you can shop for an attorney based on price..

.

But unfortunately, since she is half owner on the title, she would be entitled to half the proceeds of the sale.

.

I am very sorry that I don’t have better news, but please understand that I do have an ethical and professional obligation to provide customers with legally correct answers based on my knowledge and experience, even when I know the answer doesn’t make the customer happy...

thanks

My auntie is moving out. Can i legally change the locks and force her out .
Real Estate Lawyer: Barrister, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

Force who out? Aunt, Mother, someone else?

Mother
Real Estate Lawyer: Barrister, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

No, she is a half owner with you... She has exactly equal rights to the home as you do. That is what happens when you add someone to the deed or title... If you lock her out, she can just call the police and a locksmith and have them regain access for her.

.

Now you can still do it, but just know that it won't last very long...

.

I am sorry the news isn't better..

thanks

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.
