What Happens When One Owner Of A Property Wants To Sell And Another Owner Does Not

In Florida, co-tenants or co-owners of property have a right of partition, which means they can force a sale of the property if the parties can’t agree on whether or not to sell the property. As long as they haven’t in writing agreed to not sell the property at the time of purchase, one of the parties can file a partition action and ask the court to force a sale of the property and split the proceeds accordingly.
