What is the procedure in france for issuing une attestation en partage in france to force joint owner to buy my share. How detailed need the document be and what happens once it is served on the other party (tim limit for reply etc)?
AnswerIf two or more owners cannot agree on what to do with a piece of property they may petition the court outlining the dispute and the court will require all parties to appear and eventually order a sale or refinancing etc. so that the one or more may get out of the property obligation and/or the other(s) may keep it etc.--it is often done-- (This is true in some cases even for equitable owners that have paid various amounts etc., but for various reasons, may not be on title.)
