Legal Question

Asked on: 8/28/06, 6:45 am


My sister and I co-own a cottage after my mother's death. ''Joint tenants with full rights to survivorship'' is the method of ownership and all three names(mother, sister and myself) are listed.

I do not want to continue co-owning but my sister does.

Can I, in priority order, force her to sell her part of the cottage to me, to sell to someone else, or to buy me out?

Also, should the ''Joint tenant with full rights to survivorship'' method of ownership be changed to protect my wife's interests in the cottage while the ownership discussion progresses? If so, can I force this change?
