Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Norco
Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Riverside 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 also provide a way for co-owners to resolve disputes over the division of the property. The partition statutes provide that the court may order a partition of the property if the co-owners cannot agree on a division. The court may also order the sale of the property and the division of the proceeds among the co-owners. The partition statutes also provide that the court may award attorney’s fees and costs to the prevailing party in a partition action.
Our team of partition attorneys can assist co-owners with frequently asked questions about partitions, such as:
- 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.
- Who can file a partition action in California? Generally, any co-owner of real property can file a partition action.
- Can I recover my attorney’s fees in a partition action? Yes, you can recover your legal fees in a partition action through a motion for attorney’s fees. However, most partitions settle, and most settlements involve a walk-away of attorney’s fees, meaning it important to hire a partition attorney who will handle the matter efficiently since each party is likely to pay their own fees.
- What are my partition rights for inherited property? Co-owners of inherited property generally have the absolute right to force the sale of the property through a partition action.
- How do I file a partition action? Partition actions must be filed in the county where some or all of the co-owned real property is located by way of a partition complaint. While filing the complaint is relatively easy, reaching the end of the partition as quickly and efficiently as possible requires the skill of an experienced partition attorney.
Thomas v. Witte – Partition Action Case Study
In the legal case of Thomas v. Witte, 214 Cal.App.2d 322 (1963), the issue was whether a partition of real property was valid. The plaintiff, Thomas, owned a parcel of real property with his brother, Witte. Thomas wanted to partition the property, but Witte refused. Thomas then filed a partition action against Witte. The trial court found that the partition was valid and ordered the property to be divided. Witte appealed, arguing that the partition was invalid because it was not done in accordance with the California Code of Civil Procedure. The appellate court agreed with Witte and reversed the trial court’s decision, holding that the partition was invalid because it did not comply with the statutory requirements. The court also held that the partition was invalid because it did not provide for the equal division of the property.
