Bought home in 2009 with partner, joint ownership, partner decides to be with someone else and moves out 8mo later. I have been paying and maintaining the property since. Now she wants a partition if I dont sell or refi. I tried to refi but we have no equity and it doesn't make sense to sell because we would not get what we owe. I have always paid the mortgage (never late) and intend to continue doing so. I also have always maintained that when I can and the bank allows, I will refi the house. I am not sure what my rights are? Thank you for your help!
