Sometimes when two or more people co-own property, co-ownership becomes problematic to the point that it is no longer ideal to own the property together. Sometimes a dispute arises, sometimes one of the parties inherits their share of the property and does not want to continue ownership, sometimes it just time to part ways. There are a number of mechanisms that real estate Attorney Joe Taormina has successfully used to solve the problem of jointly owned property. If you need to split up property, or have questions, call Quattrochi & Torres at 407-452-4918 to speak with one of our partition attorneys.
Here are some ways in which an attorney can help co-owners resolve disputes or divide jointly owned property:
- Partition – Partition is a lawsuit which asks the Judge to force the sale of the property. One of the main things to remember when considering a partition is that at the end, neither party would own the property—it would be sold to a third party, and the owners split the proceeds from the sale.
- Buyout – With this option, one party buys out the other parties share. If the buying party does not have the funds to buyout, that party may be interested in taking out a loan and mortgage, and the proceeds of the loan would be used to buyout the other party.
- Agreed sale – Instead of filing a lawsuit to partition the property, often the parties will agree to sell the property and split the proceeds. This often saves the parties some attorney’s fees and is usually quicker than a partition.
Do you need to split up property?
We start by sending a letter to the other co-owner. If we do not receive a response or they decline to settle, we shift gears to filing a lawsuit. We have reached successful resolutions for many co-owners and would like to help you solve your property issues.
