In rare cases, a property can be divided, through this is not applicable to single family residences with no surplus land.
  • 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 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.
  • 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.
  • Can heirs force the sale of property? Heirs can force the sale of real property in California once that property is distributed to them. However, sometimes, the property is still held in a trust where the trustee will sell the property. When there is no trust, the probate court may decide that the probate administrator will sell the property before it is distributed in fractional interests to the heirs.

    Rutledge v. Rutledge – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Rutledge v. Rutledge, 119 Cal.App.2d 114 (1953), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The case involved a dispute between two siblings over the partition of their father’s estate. The siblings had inherited the estate upon their father’s death, and the court was tasked with determining how to divide the estate between them. The court found that the siblings had agreed to a partition of the estate, but that the agreement was not legally binding. The court also found that the siblings had not taken any steps to divide the estate, and that the estate had remained undivided for a period of more than five years. As a result, the court held that the siblings were entitled to a partition of the estate, and ordered that the estate be divided in accordance with the agreement that the siblings had reached.
