Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Wilmington

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 of the partition statutes is that it provides 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:

  • What type of relief can be granted by the court in a partition action? A partition action generally involves the sale or division of the property, along with an accounting of offsets.
  • Who can file a partition action in California? Generally, any co-owner of real property can file a partition action.
  • 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.
  • Will there be a trial in a California partition action? Trials are extremely rare in partition actions because the interlocutory judgment procedure allows for a partition referee to be appointed by meeting just a few elements that rarely involve live testimony from witnesses. Even if a trial occurred, it would almost certainly relate only to the ownership interests or the distribution of proceeds, though most cases are decided on motion heard by the court based on the papers submitted by the parties.
  • Can I be forced into selling a jointly owned house? Under California’s Partition of Real Property Act, a co-owner will have a right to buyout the property. However, absent a buy out at the appraised price, a plaintiff will likely be able to force the sale of a jointly owned house.

    Le Blanc v. McMahon – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Le Blanc v. McMahon, 2011 WL 2348459, B223909 (15-Jun-2011), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The plaintiff, Le Blanc, owned a parcel of land that was divided into two separate parcels by a fence. The defendant, McMahon, owned the parcel of land adjacent to the plaintiff’s. The plaintiff argued that the fence constituted a partition of the land, while the defendant argued that the fence was merely a boundary line and did not constitute a partition. The court ultimately found that the fence did constitute a partition, and that the plaintiff was entitled to a partition of the land. The court also found that the defendant was not entitled to any compensation for the partition, as the partition was not a voluntary act on the part of the defendant.
