Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Buena Park

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Orange County are exceptionally experienced in the area of California partition actions. California partition actions allows for the division of real property among co-owners. This statute provides a legal mechanism for co-owners to divide their real property into separate interests. The partition statutes allow for the court to order a partition of the property, either by physically dividing the property or by selling the property and dividing the proceeds among the co-owners. The partition statutes also provide for the court to award damages to any co-owner who has been wrongfully excluded from the property. The partition statutes also allows for the court to award attorney’s fees and costs to the prevailing party.

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

  • What is the average cost of a partition action? The usual cost for a partition action is about $8,000 to $12,000, depending on the complexity. Some cases settle quickly after the defendant receives the partition complaint, while others can drag on longer if there are more complex issues or delay tactics by the defendant.
  • Can we negotiate a settlement instead of going through a partition action? We find that the best solution is to file the partition action, then negotiate a settlement. Defendants often reach a more reasonable settlement when they are being advised by a partition attorney who will explain that the plaintiff is very likely to obtain the sale of the property.
  • What is the timeline for a California partition action? Most partition actions are resolved in 3 to 6 months by way of settlement. Other cases can take 6 to 12 months to obtain an interlocutory judgment of partition, which generally appoints a referee to sell the property.
  • How will the property be divided if a partition action is successful? In most partition actions, the property will be sold, rather than being divided. If the property is eligible for partition in-kind, the court can appoint a referee to prepare a report on dividing the property in a manner that does not damage the value of the fractional interests.
  • How to force the sale of jointly owned property? A partition action is the only statutory method to ensure the end of the co-ownership dispute.

    In re Marriage of Hattis – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of In re Marriage of Hattis, 196 Cal.App.3d 1162 (1987), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The court was tasked with determining whether the husband or wife had the right to partition the community property. The husband argued that he had the right to partition the property, while the wife argued that the property was not subject to partition. The court ultimately held that the husband had the right to partition the property, but that the wife had the right to receive her share of the proceeds from the sale of the property. The court also held that the wife was entitled to an equal share of the proceeds from the sale of the property, regardless of whether the husband or wife was the one who initiated the partition. The court also held that the wife was entitled to an equal share of the proceeds from the sale of the property, regardless of whether the husband or wife was the one who initiated the partition.
