Forced Sale of Realty with Service Partner, Household Member, Significant Others

A partition case in Rhode Island is a fair, legal action in which an individual corporation or legal entity can require the sale of property against another co-owner or life renter.

Partition cases can be a result of numerous different types of genuine property conflicts in between owners or life occupants or other interests in the property as set forth in the Rhode Island statute.
In some cases, the property is seen as a valuable household homestead passed down through the generations to one member of the household while the other member of the family desires to offer the property (home) and cash out the equity in the property. A Life occupant with a life estate can look for to force the sale of the property versus the owner of the property.
