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 type out an answer or reply.

.

If either of you wanted to sell and the other didn't, then the selling partner could file a legal action called a partition action and a judge would order the house sold at public auction to the highest bidder.. So yes, he could force a sale legally if you didn't voluntarily agree to sell to someone privately.

thanks
