Five years ago I found a house I wanted to buy.
I had a full-time job and saved enough money for the down payment.
I went to see about getting a loan and I was told that my income alone was not enough to secure the loan.
My father wanted to help and signed as a co-owner on the property so his income would be combined with mine so as to enable me qualify for the loan.
All was well until he and my mother divorced.
He had nowhere to go and asked to stay with me for a few months which I allowed.
After a year, he found a girlfriend and moved out, leaving behind a broken bedroom door and several holes punched into the walls.
Six months later, he is no longer with his girlfriend and asked to move back to my house; my answer was: No.
Now, he is threatening to force me to sell the house and take half the money if I don't allow him back.
Does he have the right to do this?
The only thing he has put into my house is the rent he paid while staying there, $4000. That didn't even cover the damage he did while he was there. Everything else I have paid for on my own, the downpayment, mortgages, utilities, insurance, taxes, and fixing the damage he left.
