If you're trying to get him off of the title, you either have to buy him out, or sue for partition of the property. A partition suit is likely to result in the sale of the property, and depending on how much he wants to fight it, may cost more than the property is worth.

If you just want to collect the money he owes, you might want to try the Justice Court.
