Why would you do this?
How would you do this?
If it is an inherited home why is there a mortgage...(can be I'm just asking)

On the face, it doesn't sound like a good idea to me.

Depends on which half you bought!
Shared ownership often results in feeling like the south end of a north bound horse.
When dealing with situations that have real consequences. legal council is where you must turn first. Allow the attorney to ask the 'hard' questions that most of us would be hesitant to press on our partner. Let those who have experience being the 'bad guy' do what they know how to do.
The outcome will be truly be an experience and educational opportunity you will want share with your friends. What you will learn will have other applications in regards to 'shared' partnership problems and perils.

Best of success,

Definitely speak with a real estate attorney so they can explain all of the possible implications this will have on you and your partner going forward.
