Both of our names are on the deed and the mortgage. He has established another residence when I told him to leave months ago.
I want to sell the home and he wants to rent it out. It was on the market for 90 days, but needs updating according to major feedback. I want to spend my own money to update it and pay myself back when the house sells.
1.) Can he legally rent the house out from under me? Doesn’t seem likely.
2.) What course of action can I take to make him sell? There will be No quit claim deed, no walking away, no buying out 1/2.
3.) If I hire an attorney, will that make him legally responsible for signing the separation agreement? Or does he not have to sign it…ever?
4.) Do I need it in writing before closing what I spent out of my own pocket to recoup the costs? Or because we are both on the deed will the profits automatically be split 50/50?
Thanks for your advice.
