what information do you require
Firstly, I need the full background.
Then I need to know what you would like to know about this.
What are you looking to happen or what you want to happen?
The site is empty at momentum and is owned half and half by myself and the other person i have asked to buy his share but every offer I make he says is not enough, he won't speak to me I had to find a mediator to pass emails between us which he takes time to answer, we now have to pay business rates on property so I want to use my half as I am paying money out, so i want to know if I can legally use my half , ideally I would like to buy him out but he won't let me
Why don't you simply use it? You have as much right to use it as he does.
How is he stopping you?
by threats of legal litigation, and by blocking the entrance
Sorry to be thick, so why don't you simply unblock the entrance and use it?
Civil litigation for what? Has this come from solicitors? I need minute details please, not snippets. Thanks
i will unblock the entrance, but as joint owner dosent he have a right to stop me using the site,my belief is he wants the site left empty because he wants it deralict and is trying to push me out so he can get planing for houses on the site, the litigation has not come from solicitors only threats from him,
The property is jointly owned and you have as much right to use theproperty as he does. If you use it exclusively, he is entitled to 50% of therent it would fetch on the open market.
If he wants to exclude you, he is faced with applying to court for aninjunction but is unlikely to get it on these facts.
I would get a solicitor to write to him telling him what I have told youabove and telling them that if he feels differently, he should seek legaladvice
