Co-owner’s Rights, Duties and Loyalties
People who share title to land owe each other certain duties and loyalties. Such duties include sharing all the necessary common expenses for the land’s upkeep, maintenance and real property taxes.
Co-owners also owe a duty of loyalty to each other such as making the land available for all co-owners to use and enjoyment, and refraining from conducting illegal and/or dangerous activities. Another duty of loyalty among co-owners is to share common rents and profits produced by the land.
Should one co-owner fail such duties and loyalties, the other co-owner has the right to go to Court and demand enforcement. Such enforcement can include restoring access to the injured co-owner and also terminate illegal and/or dangerous activities. Sometimes the Court may award money damages to the injured co-owner.
