Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Duarte

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Los Angeles County are exceptionally experienced in the area of California partition actions. California partition actions provide a legal mechanism for co-owners of real property to divide the property among themselves. The partition statutes allow a co-owner to file a lawsuit in court to have the property divided, either physically or by sale. The court will then order the division of the property in a way that is fair and equitable to all parties. The partition statutes also provide that any proceeds from the sale of the property must be divided among the co-owners in proportion to their respective interests in the property.

Our team of partition attorneys can assist co-owners with frequently asked questions about partitions, such as:

  • Can a partition action be stopped? Generally, a partition action cannot be stopped, but a defendant may be able to buy time to seek a resolution. Eventually, however, the plaintiff can generally force the sale of the property based on the absolute right to partition.
  • What are the potential outcomes of a partition action? The most likely outcome in a partition action is that the plaintiff receives fair value for their interest in the property either through a sale to a third party or to the defendant. In rare cases, a property can be divided, through this is not applicable to single family residences with no surplus land.
  • What is California’s Partition of Real Property Act? Effective January 1, 2023, California’s new partition law allows defendants to buy out the interests of the plaintiff at an appraised value.
  • What is a partition action and when is it necessary?
  • Will there be a trial in a California partition action? Trials are extremely rare in partition actions because the interlocutory judgment procedure allows for a partition referee to be appointed by meeting just a few elements that rarely involve live testimony from witnesses. Even if a trial occurred, it would almost certainly relate only to the ownership interests or the distribution of proceeds, though most cases are decided on motion heard by the court based on the papers submitted by the parties.

    Worcester v. Worcester – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Worcester v. Worcester, 246 Cal.App.2d 56 (1966), the issue was whether a partition of real property was proper. The court found that the partition was not proper because the property was held in joint tenancy, and the partition would have destroyed the joint tenancy. The court held that a partition of real property held in joint tenancy is not allowed because it would destroy the right of survivorship, which is an essential feature of joint tenancy. The court also held that the partition would have been proper if the property had been held in tenancy in common, but since it was held in joint tenancy, the partition was not allowed.
