Can I Force a Sale of Co-Owned Property?
Yes, Colorado has a partition statute that allow one co-owner (tenants-in-common
or joint-tenants) to petition the court to have a commissioner appointed
to either divide (large acreage) or sell the property and split the proceeds
on a contribution basis. The process usually involves the co-owners bidding
against each other before the land is offered for public sale. The process
is particularly useful to get rid of a nesting relative in estate property
or to untangle property held by non-married couples.
