Experienced Partition 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:
- What are the steps involved in a partition action in California? The first step is to file a partition complaint in California, which is followed by a request for the court to enter an interlocutory judgment of partition, thereby appointing a partition referee under the partition statutes.
- What is a partition action and when is it necessary?
- When is a partition action right for my dispute? Generally, parties who can reach their own resolution of a co-ownership dispute are not reading websites about partition law. If you are reading this article, chances are that your co-ownership dispute has reached a level where legal options are being considered. Filing a partition action will bring about a certain result to the co-ownership dispute, rather than letting it linger for years on end. However, if the parties are very close to a settlement, it may be wise to consider a resolution.
- What is recoverable in a partition action? “In a suit for partition it is a general rule that all equities and conflicting claims existing between the parties and arising out of their relation to the property to be partitioned may be adjusted.” Demetris v. Demetris (1954) 125 Cal. App. 2d 440. This means that co-owners can assert offsets or recover payments of the mortgage, taxes, insurance, repairs and improvements in excess of their fractional interests.
- 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.

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.
