Your options are likely limited to these in the situation described:

1. Negotiate a deal with the other co-owner in which one of you buys out the interest of the other in the property;

2. File a partition suit in the circuit court where the property is located and request that the court order a sale in lieu of partition. (This could be expensive and time consuming.)
