A partner and I purchased a house to ultimately renovate and sell. The tax bill for the dwelling is in both our names. There is no loan; only a verbal agreement that we are to be 50/50 partners. My partner (unknown until the paperwork arrived) quit claimed the property to me. I do not want to solely be responsible for the taxes, insurance and maintenance as that was not the verbal agreement. Can he just quit claim it over to me and I have to take responsibility? Can I just quit claim it back to him?
