Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Carlsbad

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving San Diego 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 much does a partition action cost? The cost of a partition action can vary widely depending on the complexity of the case. A typical partition action usually costs between $5,000 and $12,000, with about $8,000 being the most common cost. However, difficulty locating a defendant, the motion to appoint a partition referee, delay tactics by defendants, and other issues may raise the cost of your partition action. An experienced partition lawyer can mitigate costs and resolve your co-ownership dispute with maximum efficiency.
  • How does a partition action work in California?
  • 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.
  • Who pays for a partition action? In California, each party typically pays for their own attorney’s fees (known as the “American Rule”). However, California partition law allows for an exception to this rule, stating that “the court shall apportion the costs of partition among the parties in proportion to their interests or make such other apportionment as may be equitable.” California Code of Civil Procedure 874.040. Indeed, the court may award “reasonable attorney’s fees incurred or paid by a party for the common benefit.” California Code of Civil Procedure 874.010(a).
  • 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.

    Formosa Corp. v. Rogers – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Formosa Corp. v. Rogers, 108 Cal.App.2d 397 (1951), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The case involved a dispute between two shareholders of a corporation, Formosa Corporation, over the ownership of certain real property. The plaintiff, Formosa Corporation, sought to partition the property, while the defendant, Rogers, argued that the property was owned by the corporation and not subject to partition. The court ultimately held that the property was owned by the corporation and not subject to partition. The court reasoned that the property was held in trust for the benefit of the corporation and its shareholders, and that the shareholders had no right to partition the property. The court also noted that the corporation had the right to manage and control the property, and that the shareholders had no right to interfere with the corporation’s management of the property.
