Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving La Mirada

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:

  • Do I need to go to court to win a partition action? While the partition action must be filed with the court, partition actions rarely involve a trial in which the co-owners appear at court. This means it is extremely unlikely that you will need to step foot in a courtroom. Most partition work is done by motion practice involving tentative rulings with little interaction between the court and the attorneys, let alone the co-owners.
  • How long will it take to get the property partitioned and sold? Most commonly, 3 to 6 months is all that it takes for the defendant to agree to a sale or buyout the plaintiff’s interest in the property for a fair value. Some cases may take 6 to 12 months.
  • 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.
  • What type of relief can be granted by the court in a partition action? A partition action generally involves the sale or division of the property, along with an accounting of offsets.
  • What are the different types of partition in California? Almost all partition actions are partition by sale, though partition in-kind allows the property to be divided, while a partition by appraisal allows the purchase by one-co-owner at an appraised value.

    Parker v. Owen – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Parker v. Owen, 96 Cal.App.2d 78 (1950), the issue was whether a partition of real property was valid. The plaintiff, Parker, owned a parcel of land with his brother, Owen. Parker wanted to partition the land, but Owen refused. Parker then filed a partition action against Owen. The trial court found that the partition was valid and ordered the land to be divided. However, Owen appealed the decision, arguing that the partition was invalid because it was not done in accordance with the law. The appellate court agreed with Owen and reversed the trial court’s decision, holding that the partition was invalid because it was not done in accordance with the law. The court held that a partition must be done in accordance with the law in order to be valid, and that the partition in this case was not done in accordance with the law.
