in joint ownership of a house if one owner does not want to sell can they be forced to

wingrovebuyer : Hello. Yes, but you would need to go to court and ask for an order for sale. The court will only grant this if your need is greater than the need of the owner who does not want to sell. That could be financial need, or the need for a roof over your / their head.
wingrovebuyer : As with any litigation, this would be fairly expensive. Be prepared to spend a least £5,000 if it is you wishing to sell.
