An heir to a property in Israel inherits duties to contribute to its maintenance, such as paying council tax, repairs, service fees, etc.

When co-ownership is involved, the co-owner has the right to receive his share of rent payments or a reasonable payment for the use of the property, for example when the other partner occupies it.

Any partner in an Israeli partnership has the right to dissolve the partnership by physically dividing the property between them, selling it to the other partner or selling it to a third party.

In many cases, the restrictions on travel to Israel imposed by Covid-19 caused problems with the management of co-owned properties and the loss of control by non-Israeli partners.

In some cases, co-owners may ask a good neighbour or relative for help, but in most cases the help is only temporary and does not solve the problem of managing a shared property.

Negotiations with the other partner may lead to the execution of a partnership agreement that will govern the management of property, income shares and reporting obligations.

In some cases, it may be in the co-owner’s best interest to sell the part for a market price, despite the objections of the other party.
