Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Monrovia

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Los Angeles 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:

  • 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.
  • Can I still file a partition if my co-owner has filed for bankruptcy? Yes, the partition action can generally be filed in the bankruptcy court or the bankruptcy court can apply state partition law to allow offsets when the co-owned property is sold by the bankruptcy trustee.
  • What to expect in a California partition action? Partition actions necessarily resolve the conflict between co-owners through an expedited statutory process. A capable partition attorney will assist in expediting the process and producing the most favorable outcome.
  • Who can file a partition action in California? Generally, any co-owner of real property can file a partition action.
  • Can you lose interest in a jointly owned home by moving out? Generally, co-owners maintain their ownership interests regardless of whether they live at the property. However, in rare cases, leaving the property for many years without paying taxes or other expenses may allow the co-owners in possession to argue that they have adversely possessed the property. Generally, these co-ownership disputes do not get easier with time, so it is important to act promptly.

    Romanchek v. Romanchek – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Romanchek v. Romanchek, 248 Cal.App.2d 337 (1967), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The case involved a dispute between two siblings over the partition of their parents’ estate. The siblings had inherited the estate from their parents, who had died without a will. The siblings had agreed to partition the estate, but the agreement was never formalized. The court found that the siblings had agreed to partition the estate, but that the agreement was not binding because it was not in writing. The court also found that the siblings had not taken any action to partition the estate, and that the estate had not been partitioned in accordance with the agreement. The court held that the siblings were entitled to partition the estate, but that the partition must be done in accordance with the agreement.
