Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Rohnert Park

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Sonoma 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 awarding each co-owner a certain percentage of the property’s value. The court will then order the property to be divided according to the co-owners’ wishes. The partition statutes also provide that if the court finds that a physical division of the property is not possible, it may order the property to be sold and the proceeds divided among the co-owners.

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

  • 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.
  • What is a partition referee? A partition referee is a neutral third party, often times a lawyer or real estate broker, who completes the sale for the co-owners under court authority. The referee is then paid for their services either on an hourly, flat fee, or commission basis, and is relieved by the court of their duties in the case.
  • Can a Trust File a Partition? Yes, a trust can file a partition action as the co-owner of real property in California.
  • In a partition action, can I be reimbursed for paying more than my fair share of the down payment? Yes, partition actions allow for offsets whereby one co-owner claims excess payments for mortgage, taxes, insurance, improvements, repairs and other property expenses
  • What is the average cost of a partition action? The usual cost for a partition action is about $8,000 to $12,000, depending on the complexity. Some cases settle quickly after the defendant receives the partition complaint, while others can drag on longer if there are more complex issues or delay tactics by the defendant.

    Pine v. Tiedt – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Pine v. Tiedt, 232 Cal.App.2d 733 (1965), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The case involved a dispute between two co-owners of a parcel of real property. The plaintiff, Pine, sought to partition the property, while the defendant, Tiedt, argued that the property should not be partitioned. The court ultimately held that the property should be partitioned, but that the partition should be done in a manner that would not cause any damage to the property. The court also held that the partition should be done in a way that would not cause any financial hardship to either party. The court also noted that the partition should be done in a way that would not interfere with the rights of either party to use the property.
