Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Cerritos

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Los Angeles 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 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.
  • How do I file a partition action? Partition actions must be filed in the county where some or all of the co-owned real property is located by way of a partition complaint. While filing the complaint is relatively easy, reaching the end of the partition as quickly and efficiently as possible requires the skill of an experienced partition attorney.
  • 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.
  • What is a partition action and when is it necessary?
  • Can you lose interest in a jointly owned home by moving out? Generally, co-owners maintain their ownership interests regardless of whether they live at the property. However, in rare cases, leaving the property for many years without paying taxes or other expenses may allow the co-owners in possession to argue that they have adversely possessed the property. Generally, these co-ownership disputes do not get easier with time, so it is important to act promptly.

    Noce v. Daveggio – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Noce v. Daveggio, 2 Cal.Unrep. 354 (1884), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The case involved a dispute between two co-owners of a piece of real estate. The two parties had agreed to divide the property into two equal parts, but the defendant refused to carry out the agreement. The plaintiff argued that the defendant was obligated to divide the property in accordance with the agreement, while the defendant argued that the agreement was invalid and that the property should remain undivided. The court ultimately ruled in favor of the plaintiff, finding that the agreement was valid and that the defendant was obligated to divide the property in accordance with the agreement. The court also held that the defendant was liable for any damages caused by his refusal to comply with the agreement.
