I lived with mom. she died I month ago and I paid all bills( taxes etc..) Other half owner told me he cannot pay any bills for lack of no money Why would I be made to sell/buy his half when he never lived/paid bills or made any repairs to the house? He has never asked for keys to the house.He said he can make me pay rent. Do I have to pay rent on the house I own half of ? How much of the taxes/property insurance can I sue him for if he never paid any? Does paying rent make me a tenant? If so, can I force the other half owner to make repairs as I would be just a tenant? If I hire someone to make repairs to the house as half owner can I make him split the cost or should I only make repairs for the parts of the house that I use Kitchen, bathroom...?
