Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Brea

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Orange 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 awarding each co-owner a certain percentage of the property’s value. The court will then order the property to be divided according to the co-owners’ wishes. The partition statutes also provide that if the court finds that a physical division of the property is not possible, it may order the property to be sold and the proceeds divided among the co-owners.

Our team of partition attorneys can assist co-owners with frequently asked questions about partitions, such as:

  • Can a partition action be filed for both real property and personal property in California? Yes, all co-owned real and personal property can be partitioned under California law. Cal. Civ. Proc. Code § 872.020.
  • What types of properties can be subject to a partition action in California? All co-owned real or personal property can be partitioned under California law. Cal. Civ. Proc. Code § 872.020.
  • Can a Trust File a Partition? Yes, a trust can file a partition action as the co-owner of real property in California.
  • Can a partition action be stopped or dismissed in California? The truth is that there are very few affirmative defenses in a partition action, and those defenses are rarely applied by courts in California.
  • 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.

    Pioneer Mill Co. v. Victoria Ward, Limited – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Pioneer Mill Co. v. Victoria Ward, Limited, 158 F.2d 122 (1946), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The case involved a dispute between two companies, Pioneer Mill Co. and Victoria Ward, Limited, over the ownership of a certain parcel of land. The land in question was owned by Pioneer Mill Co., but Victoria Ward, Limited had been granted a lease on the land. The dispute arose when Pioneer Mill Co. sought to partition the land, meaning that it wanted to divide the land into two separate parcels and sell one of them. Victoria Ward, Limited argued that the partition would interfere with its lease and that it should be allowed to purchase the entire parcel of land. The court ultimately ruled in favor of Pioneer Mill Co., finding that the partition would not interfere with Victoria Ward, Limited’s lease and that Pioneer Mill Co. had the right to partition the land.
