Can a sibling be forcibly removed from joint ownership

My brother, sister and I have joint ownership of a summer residency. My sister has not met her monthly financial contributions as part of the up keep of the cottage. She does not return calls or texts regarding her financial obligation.  Can my brother and I have her removed as part owner of this cottage?

Seek legal counsel for the right answer. If you can't afford one, try legal aide in your city to assist you. It's really a question for an attorney though.

I think an attorney would ask - does she have a financial obligation? Is it written? What recourse do the other two "partners" have in default?

I don't think you're going to get far with this approach.

All the best,

Sounds like something you should review with your attorney.   Take along the initial contract for review.
