Ok quick question here.
I co-own a house with my brother, and I've never seen a dime from the rental income. The house is in California and it was being rented for just one year. My brother has the only key to the house, there's a locked gate on the premises, and now he's thrown out the tenants he had renting the house so the house is sitting empty. So my questions are these: I can't rent the house, can I? Since I don't have access to it? And if I did, could I collect the rent and would I be obligated to give my brother half the rent? Because if he rents the house out again, and I have no idea when that might be, isn't he obligated to split the proceeds with me after the expenses have been deducted? How does that all work?
Thank you to whoever replies!
