Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving West Hollywood
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:

Ritzman v. Ritzman – Partition Action Case Study
In the legal case of Ritzman v. Ritzman, 190 Cal. 505 (1923), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The case involved a dispute between two siblings over the partition of a family ranch. The plaintiff, the brother, sought to partition the ranch, while the defendant, the sister, argued that the ranch should not be partitioned. The court ultimately ruled in favor of the plaintiff, finding that the ranch should be partitioned. The court noted that the sister had failed to show any legal or equitable reason why the partition should not be allowed. The court also noted that the sister had failed to show any evidence that the partition would be detrimental to her interests. The court concluded that the partition should be allowed, and that the sister should receive her share of the proceeds from the sale of the ranch.
