We are in a partnership with the family ranch, 2 brothers each own 11% and parents own the rest of the interest in the property. We did all the improvements on our part of the ranch that we lease. This money did not come out of the partnership in anyway, it came out of 1 brothers pocket. The ranch is getting ready to sell and we would like to get paid for our improvements. Our banker suggested putting a lien on the property so we could get our money back out of it for all the improvements that we did ourselves.
