Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Amador County

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Amador 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:

  • How long does a partition action take in California?” Most partition actions are complete in 3 to 6 months because most cases settle in either a buyout or agreed sale. However, some cases can drag on for 6 to 12 months.
  • 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.
  • What are the tax implications of a partition action? It is best to seek the advice of a tax attorney or CPA about tax issues. However, the most common tax issues in partitions, like other sales, can involve capital gains taxes and the potential partial or full reassessment of property taxes.
  • Can a partition action be stopped? Generally, a partition action cannot be stopped, but a defendant may be able to buy time to seek a resolution. Eventually, however, the plaintiff can generally force the sale of the property based on the absolute right to partition.
  • 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.

    Regalado v. Regalado – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Regalado v. Regalado, 198 Cal.App.2d 549 (1961), 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 siblings had inherited the ranch from their father, who had died without a will. The siblings had agreed to partition the ranch, but the agreement was never formalized. The court found that the siblings had agreed to partition the ranch, but that the agreement was not binding because it was not in writing. The court also found that the siblings had not taken any steps to partition the ranch, such as filing a partition action in court. As a result, the court held that the siblings were still joint owners of the ranch and that the partition agreement was not binding.
