When land is under co-ownership of two or more people who cannot agree on what to do with the land, any owner can file a Petition to Partition in the appropriate court.

A nice explanation of the Petition to partition. But sometimes the partitions can be extremely complicated and if you disagree with the petition in that case you can contact the court and consent to the petition for partition. See related question.


I own a summer home with my four sisters. It has become extremely toxic and acrimonious. If I want to sell my share to one of them (or anyone, for that matter), don't I have to file a Petition to Partion first?
