Given what you said, neither side can sell the property without the consent of the other. If you want to sell the property then you will have to talk to your ex or bring an action through the courts to force a sale.

If the ditch/water is completely on his property than you have very few options, if it is on both your properties then you can potentially force him to modify it to remove the standing water. Speak to a local attorney to see what your options are.
You should search the title for at least the last two conveyances. Apparently he was deeded the property, for which he would not usually sign the Deed himself. Even if it was a mistake, if he has some estate then to extinguish it he will need to convey his interest by deed to you or someone...Read more »
The lawyer handling the sale will likely be sufficient to provide you with the proper paperwork, but if you want someone to review it to address any concerns or identify any potential issues you should hire a lawyer.
The agent's fees generally come out of the seller's proceeds, so it is in their interest to sell the property as high as possible. However, if you were to hire a different agent, you are in the same situation, as their fees also come out of the seller's proceeds. It all comes down to...Read more »
Provided you were under contract; you likely can still enforce the sale against the Estate (I would have to read the contract to make sure).

Since you did not state how the house was titled in your Father. Hire a competent attorney to conduct a title search. You and your Sister may still have an ownership interest. If so, you all will need to get paid for your conveyance.
My boyfriend owned land in NC left no will. The deed In his name only. I have talked to the children and they do not want the land or pay the delinquent taxes due? The city is going to foreclose on the land. If they are willing to gift or sell the land to me what do I need to do to own the land?
You need a deed from all the children and their spouses, and to pay the back taxes, probably to both the city and county. Any NC lawyer can draw up the deed, but it would be advisable to get one more local to ensure that foreclosure proceedings haven't been initiated.
It depends on many factors, whether or not the deceased had wills, how the property was titled, what the marital status of the deceased was at their death, and who their legal heirs were. I would hire a local NC attorney to answer these questions, and from there, you can proceed forward.
At the present time the gift tax exemption is more than $11 million per person. You could gift your entire share to her all at once and not incur any gift tax as long as that gift plus prior gifts made by you in the past do not exceed $11 million in the aggregate.
verbal agreement with our cousin over five-plus years ago to live in the (questionable habitable) house rent-free. We are not interested in being landlords and very concerned about the habitability of the property. We would like assistance with the rights of both parties.
Under your scenario, provided that you are now the owners of the property you have the right to revoke your cousin's ability to live there. There is likely a very minimal landlord-tenant relationship, so I would give at least a 7-day notice and hope that your cousin agrees to moe out otherwise...Read more »
My Aunt added her nephew's name to the deed of her house. She now wants to have her nephew's name removed from the deed so that she can sell the house and move into her family's home house. How can she do this without his consent?
The short answer is she can't - at least not legally. If he will not consent to being removed she will need to request a partition to sell the house and the nephew will likely get 50% of any profit or she can attempt to buy out his interest or sell her interest to him.
