Hi all, Not sure if this is the right sub but here we go.
Context My GF co-owns a house (California) with her younger sister which they inherited from a trust when she was 18 and their grandma died. They live together and charge roommates that cover most of the mortgage each month (whatever it is they owe they split to cover the mortgage). The younger sister is planning on moving out and is threatening to take half of the money they are charging the roommates. I dont have all the information but their grandma appointed someone overseeing the trust. My gf sends a check to the mortgage company every month but does not have the ability to see the statements on the mortgage, only the guy managing the trust. Transitioning from being a highschooler to owning a house and surviving on her own has been very stressful for my gf. She handles all the maintenance and deals with all the bills. The younger sister pays for half of everything and thats it. She takes no responsibility in keeping up with the house and is bat sh*t crazy. She doesnt clean the house, do her dishes, maintain the yard, underage drinks, is disrespectful to roommates, drinks all night and is obnoxiously loud, and even gets physical with my gf when shes told to respect everyone in the house. The younger sister is threatening to either sue for the house or will demand 50% of whats being charged to the roommates for her to pocket if she moves out.
Questions Are the co-owners or the overseer of the trust financially responsible for the house.
Can the sister demand half of what the roommates are being charges because she is not living in the house?
Can either co-owner fight for 100% without buying each other out.
