You need a real estate attorney to look at every piece of paperwork attached to this property and determine what steps should be taken to get to the result that you desire.
I did not go into this in my last answer to your last question, but it is always a concern when one of two parties that are legally attached to a property is less than fiscally responsible. It may or may not be in your best interest to take on more financial and legal responsibility in this situation even though it may appear the obvious solution to you.
The answers you are seeking can only be provided to you by an attorney. A real estate professional is not legally allowed to provide you the definitive answers you need. All the answers here are opinions, you are making a huge financial decision and this public forum cannot provide you with the specific data you should have. Please find a reputable real estate attorney and protect yourself. If you need a recommendation please email me privately and I will send you three Philadelphia area possibilities.
