California Code of Civil Procedure 874.315 is the California partition statute that sets forth the role of the referee in the Uniform Partition of Heirs Property Act. The statute states the following:
If the court appoints referees pursuant to Section 873.010, each referee, in addition to any other requirements and disqualifications applicable to referees, shall be disinterested and impartial and not a party to or a participant in the action.California Code of Civil Procedure 874.315
This means that referees under the Uniform Partition of Heirs Property Act in California cannot be related to the action, thereby creating more trust between heirs as to the outcome of the partition.
