I am not sure what your concern is, exactly:

  1. You don’t want to be liable for paying this guy for any work that was authorized only by the co-owner and not by you?

  2. You don’t want the guy on the property period because he is a stinker?

  3. You don’t want the surveys done because the surveys are detrimental to your interests??

More details, S. V. P.

As a general rule, one co-owner cannot bar the other co-owner from using property. And “use” would typically include the right to allow others onto the property, as well as probably to survey it as long as the property wasn’t damaged.

That’s just my inexpert, non-lawyerly opinion.

I have some jointly owned property where I am the majority land owner. We hired a consultant forester to obtain bids, and supervise the cutting of timber. This transaction is finished!
Contractual agreement has ended!

One of the minority owners continues to let this person on the property as a consultant for surveys etc.

Can I stop this?
