What rights do I have regarding jointly owned property?

Question Details: We bought a property with friends. They paid cash for half and took out a loan for the other half. The loan is in their name. Our arrangement is that we pay them for the loan payment and we split the costs on all common expenses. We do not have a signed written contract. Can they buy us out by paying us the investments we have made, can they just tell us to leave, can they sell the property and not divide the sale equally?
