Buyout Agreement for Jointly Owned Real Estate (User Friendly)

    Why use this legal form?

    • Co-owners can use this form to accomplish a purchase or sale to other co-owners.
    • Instead of litigation, co-owners can resolve ownership issues with a buyout and save thousands in attorney fees.
    • Co-owners can avoid a partition action or a forced sale in certain cases.
    • It’s written in plain, understandable language. But it’s still thorough and detailed.


    What is a real estate buyout?

    A buyout occurs when a co-owner of jointly owned real estate buys the ownership of any other co-owner. One owner can buy the ownership of all other co-owners, or just the some of them.

    Should you hire an attorney or use this legal template?

    This legal template is not the same as hiring an attorney, and in some cases, you should hire an attorney. That is 100% your decision.

    But here are some reasons why you might want to use this legal template:

    • Pay a small fraction of what you would pay an attorney
    • Stay in control of the negotiation process
    • Avoid threatening your co-owners with a lawyer unless absolutely necessary
    • Get started immediately rather than waiting on an attorney
    • Attempt to resolve the situation outside of court (and hire an attorney for court only if necessary)
