Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Irvine

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Orange County are exceptionally experienced in the area of California partition actions. A California partition action is a law that allows co-owners of real property to divide the property among themselves. The partition statutes provide a legal mechanism for co-owners to divide the property without having to go through the court system. The partition statutes allow co-owners to divide the property either by agreement or by court order. If the co-owners cannot agree on how to divide the property, then the court will divide the property in a way that is fair and equitable to all parties. The partition statutes also provide that any partition of the property must be in accordance with the laws of the state of California. The legal effect is that these statutes provide a legal mechanism for co-owners to divide their property without having to go through the court system.

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

  • Can a minority owner force the sale of a property? There is no requirement for a majority vote for partition. Rather, an co-owner of any interest in property can force the sale.
  • What is the timeline for a California partition action? Most partition actions are resolved in 3 to 6 months by way of settlement. Other cases can take 6 to 12 months to obtain an interlocutory judgment of partition, which generally appoints a referee to sell the property.
  • What types of properties can be subject to a partition action in California? All co-owned real or personal property can be partitioned under California law. Cal. Civ. Proc. Code § 872.020.
  • How does a partition action work in California?
  • What are the steps involved in a partition action in California? The first step is to file a partition complaint in California, which is followed by a request for the court to enter an interlocutory judgment of partition, thereby appointing a partition referee under the partition statutes.

    Briges v. Sperry – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Briges v. Sperry, 95 U.S. 401 (1877), the issue was whether a partition of real estate could be made without the consent of all the owners. The case involved a dispute between two brothers, William and John Sperry, over the partition of their father’s real estate. William wanted to partition the land, while John objected. The court held that a partition of real estate could not be made without the consent of all the owners, and that William’s attempt to partition the land without John’s consent was invalid. The court also held that the partition could not be made without the approval of the court. This case established the principle that all owners must agree to a partition of real estate before it can be legally enforced.
