My question involves bankruptcy in the state of: Maryland
I am a Joint Tenant co-owner of a property in Maryland. The other co-owner has filed Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, and the trustee for the estate has filed documents to force the sale of he property and is now suing me for my portion of the net proceeds. What are my rights as a joint tenant? I have not filed bankruptcy and would like to stop the sale of the property. Do I have the legal right to stop the sale? If so, what do I need to file? Do I have the right to my share of the net proceeds? If so what are my rights and what do I need to file to collect these net proceeds?
Ultimately I would like to buy the house back. Do I have the legal right to do this?
