At the heart of general practice since 1960

We have to refurbish our premises but one of the property-owning partners won't pay up, what do we do?

One building, 2 practices, 3 property owning partners. We were one big practice originally but split some 5yrs ago. This created 2 property owning partners in one practice - the one I am in - and the other practice was left with one property owning partner. We essentially divided the premises into halves and share heating /lighting & other utilities.

Now we are in a position where we have to spend money on refurbishment and also roof repairs. The other partners in the practice with minority property owning partner have declared they will not cover any of the cost, except for the car park, which they will spit the cost. How do we approach this?
