Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
Could you please give me a little more information- ar ethe parties married?
No, none to the two parties are married
Thanks for your reply.
Well, provided you are both holding the property as Tenants in common, either party has the right to apply to Court for an Order for Sale.
There are one of 2 ways in which joint owners hold a property- either as Joint tenants or Tenants in common. If you are unsure how the property is being held, a local Solicitor will be able to help you relatively easily and if you ar eholding the property as Joint tenants, it is a relatively simple process to convert to Tenants in common.
Hopefully, the mere threat of Court will make the other party.
I hope this assists and sets out the legal position.
Can I assist you any further?Kind RegardsAl
