Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Palmdale

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 Trust File a Partition? Yes, a trust can file a partition action as the co-owner of real property in California.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Are there methods to resolve a partition situation without a court-ordered sale? The vast majority of partitions are solved without a court-ordered sale. Many times, the defendant will buy out the plaintiff’s interest. Other times, the parties will agree to a voluntary sale on the open market. However, the filing of the partition action is generally what forces the defendant to see the wisdom of settlement. Under California’s Partition of Real Property Act, a defendant can buy out the interest of the plaintiff at an appraised value, meaning that a court-ordered sale is only likely occur where the defendant simply can’t afford to buy the property but still won’t agree to sell.
  • How will the property be divided if a partition action is successful? In most partition actions, the property will be sold, rather than being divided. If the property is eligible for partition in-kind, the court can appoint a referee to prepare a report on dividing the property in a manner that does not damage the value of the fractional interests.

    Davis v. Pacific Imp. Co. – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Davis v. Pacific Imp. Co., 118 Cal. 45 (1897), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The plaintiff, Davis, owned a parcel of land that was divided into two parts by a fence. The defendant, Pacific Imp. Co., owned the land on the other side of the fence. Davis argued that the fence should be removed and the land should be partitioned into two equal parts, with each party receiving one half. Pacific Imp. Co. argued that the fence should remain in place and that Davis should receive the land on his side of the fence, while Pacific Imp. Co. should receive the land on their side of the fence. The court ultimately ruled in favor of Davis, ordering that the fence be removed and the land be partitioned into two equal parts.
