Can the half owner of a property collect rent from the owner living on the property?

We have a copy of the deed listing my husband first and then his father. My husband has owned the property jointly with his dad since 2002. His dad has paid the taxes on it. We want him to buy out our half but I don't think he can with his credit. We want to know if we can charge him rent or even back-owed rent. We have had to pay rent on our home we have been living in and his dad gets to live on the property rent free.
