Do you have the deed or can you get it copied from the Recorder’s office showing you as 1/3 owner? if so, just show up at the eviction hearing and present your case as being an owner, not a tenant. That should get the eviction killed quickly.

However, if you have a separate agreement to occupy the property whereas the other owner do not live there, then the eviction may get referred to the regular courts.

I might agree with Rich that as a 1/3 owner, the other two cannot technically EVICT you. But were you planning to live there for free??

If my dad passed away, with my siblings out of state, it wouldn’t feel right to me if I just moved into his place, rent free, and tell my siblings “go fly a kite, I’m a 1/3 owner”.

The others can start a “partition suit” to sell the place, which I admit is hard to do if the 1/3 owner refuses to leave and make a mess of the place. But then, is it FAIR??
