I co-own a property with my brother in the UK, which came about as the result of an inheritance. We can’t agree on what to do with the property now that probate has gone through. I have no plans to return to the Uk and would like to sell up. My brother lives in NZ, but is planning to return to the UK in the next couple of years. He wants to rent it out between us initially and then buy me out down the track. At the moment, he can’t afford to buy me out hence the need for renting it out until such time as he heads back and can get a Uk mortgage. I can foresee lots of problems if we try to manage the property together from such a long distance and it is also an old property that needs some maintenance before it is rentable anyway. The problem is that my brother is digging his heels in and communication has now broken down between us. Has anyone been through something similar? I will be seeking a lawyer for advice, but I thought I’d ask if anyone has experienced this type of situation before and had any tips for me? I would prefer to work something out between us if possible rather than bringing in lawyers, but I don’t know what else to do.
