Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Baldwin Park
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:
- Will the plaintiff win a California partition action? The plaintiff almost always prevails in a partition. This is because the right to partition is absolute under California law. Most partition actions result in the Defendant agreeing to sell the property or buyout the plaintiff’s interest in the property, which is generally the plaintiff’s goal.
- Who can file a partition action in California? Generally, any co-owner of real property can file a partition action.
- What are the costs associated with a partition action? The costs of a partition action generally involve the attorney’s fees, and court costs, but can involve referee fees and broker’s fees if the property is sold.
- 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.
- Do I need to go to court to win a partition action? While the partition action must be filed with the court, partition actions rarely involve a trial in which the co-owners appear at court. This means it is extremely unlikely that you will need to step foot in a courtroom. Most partition work is done by motion practice involving tentative rulings with little interaction between the court and the attorneys, let alone the co-owners.
Kerrigan v. Maloof – Partition Action Case Study
In the legal case of Kerrigan v. Maloof, 98 Cal.App.2d 605 (1950), 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 home. The siblings had inherited the home from their parents, and the sister, Kerrigan, wanted to partition the home so that each sibling could have their own separate residence. The brother, Maloof, however, refused to agree to the partition, claiming that the home was a single unit and could not be divided. The court ultimately ruled in favor of Kerrigan, finding that the home could be partitioned and that each sibling was entitled to their own separate residence. The court also found that the partition should be done in a manner that would not cause any damage to the home or its value.
