Legal Question in Real Estate Law in New York

I own a property with one other person that is towards the end of foreclosure. The other owner has been continuously unresponsive to my communication. The property should be able to sell for more than what is owed and I have already started showing it. I'm concerned that if I get an offer the other owner won't sign it. How do I protect myself in this situation?

You would likely need file an action for Partition and an Order seeking the sale of the property. We have substantial experience handling these types of cases and very reasonable fees. However, we would need some more information before making a complete and proper determination. You are welcome to contact us for a free consultation.
