Real and personal property may be partitioned in one action.

California Code of Civil Procedure 872.240

In a partition action, joinder allows real property division as well as personal property division to both be heard in a single trial. While both real and personal property may be divided in the partition action, real properties that are divided via a partition action may not necessarily be sold as a single unit. In fact, there is a preference for selling a property in distinct lots or parcels over selling it as a whole. [1]California Code of Civil Procedure 873.620
