New Jersey - Dad owns 1/2 of a two family home with cousin. Dad wants out, cousin won't buy him out. Renting his half is not an option. Can he sell half a house? Can she be forced to buy him out, or sell her half? Do we need a lawyer? Any advice/opinions would be most appreciated. We don't know what to do from here (this has been going on for nearly 5 years - cousin is still living in the house, Dad has not for that time - she pays taxes - situation is very touchy).

Thank you,
POA for Dad
