The high cost of purchasing a property has led to more people choosing to make joint purchases with a friend or relative sometimes with a joint mortgage. Sometimes they fall out and end up arguing about who is entitled to the sale proceeds. In other cases the dispute is whether the property should be sold at all. In these situations it may be necessary to obtain a court order not only that the property be sold but giving detailed directions as to how, when and on what terms it is to be sold.
At Hart Brown our property dispute lawyers can provide specialist advice on property disputes involving joint ownership where the owners are not married to each other. In these joint ownership property disputes working out who is entitled to what is not always straight forward. It may not be a question of just looking at the title deeds and documents but reviewing the whole history of the co-owners financial dealings with particular reference to the purchase, maintenance and improvement of the property and the payment of any mortgage.
We can also help where one of the joint owners has a dispute with a creditor. If you are the other co-owner you will not want such a dispute to affect you in any way and we can ensure that your rights are properly protected.
