    Default Unwanted Dog on Shared Property

    My question involves personal property located in the State of: Nebraska

    I was desperate to get into this new house and I did so, but not under the best circumstances. I agreed to partial ownership of the house even though it's my loan. I'm disabled and I need somebody to take care of me, so keep in mind the decisions I make can be a bit compromised. Anyways, now that I'm in the house, we both have partial ownership since we're both on the deed, to my understanding. But...yeah, guess what: He's got an annoying dog that barks too much. Not sure if I could make this case, but this thing aggravates my condition since I have severe anxiety and it barks really loudly and suddenly...something not good for my recovery from this. I still think I'm getting better but the dumb dog is definitely slowing down my progress a lot. I've told my dad about this but he just insists on keeping it since he has an emotional bond with the animal. (Really selfish and disgusting in my humble opinion!) He also wakes me up at night totally randomly. Probably an average of once a night or sometimes just early in the morning. That doesn't help me or my condition either, let's keep it to that.

    So the question is, given the situation, do I have any legal grounds to force the dog out of my house? Or is this something for a social worker?

    First, you need to confirm how the home is actually deeded. I don't quite understand how you could not already know the answer to this.

    We are both on the deed for sure. What I was saying is that I don't know how exactly that affects ownership.

    I'm going to bet that you have no avenue to have the dog legally removed.

    What is the relationship between you and the other party? How did you get into this co-ownership?

    It's my father. He gifted me money to make a 50/50 down payment on the house. So we're both equally invested and both on the deed.

    Easy: he owns half and you own half.

    There's little you'll likely be able to do and, if this is your dad, as you seem to say, then your surprise at there being a dog is pretty unbelievable. Also, you attitude towards your father's bond with his dog is abhorrent.

    If your father is providing you care AND paying for a share of the house (I'm making an assumption here) you should think carefully before you choose to upset that apple cart.
    "Where do those stairs go?"
    "They go up!"

    Ok but what exactly does owning half mean? Obviously I understand the general idea that we both own half. For all I know, I could just say "get off my property!" and have something legally removed, though apparently not judging by the responses I'm getting so far.

    Honestly I disagree that my attitude in regards to the dog situation is a bad one. He's sacrificing the health of his only son, a human being, for what? To own a dog? Why? God forbid somebody else has to lose something they're attached to.

    But yes I am aware that it's a precarious situation. However, I really don't need that much care. It's not like he's waiting on me hand and foot. All I need is my mail and a ride to the VA once or twice a month.

    Obviously, you don't.

    Your father owns as much of the house as you do. You own it equally. You are both kings of the castle. Neither you nor he is top dog.

    Your father gifted you the money needed to make the down payment and you are being this ungrateful? Why don't you just move out and live somewhere else since the money was all your dad's in the first place?
