I am the co-owner of a home, both my name and roomates name appear on the deed to the house we own the property 50 50 and both live there. His girlfriend also lives with us, receives mail there and pays for 1/3 on all bills, she does not have a lease with us. I no longer wish for her to live there it has become unpleasant for me and I feel uncomfortable in my own home. She keeps drugs in the house I am uncomfortable with, has people over I do not get along with or want there, often disturbing me when I am trying to sleep, and moves my personal belongings around the house when I'm not there. Am i able to evict her from the property?
The answer is probably not as straight-forward, assuming you and your roommate do not have a formal, written agreement on management. You probably cannot make unilateral decisions. You could go to the police, but need to be prepared for the negative fall-out either way. If the situation is truly untenable, you should consider calling an attorney to explore your options.
The easiest solution would be to try to come to an agreement with them. Partitioning the home is the final recourse. That would involve selling it and splitting the proceeds.
