Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Citrus Heights

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Sacramento 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 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.
  • Can a Trust File a Partition? Yes, a trust can file a partition action as the co-owner of real property in California.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    Higgins v. Higgins – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Higgins v. Higgins, 46 Cal. 259 (1873), the issue was whether a partition of real property could be made between two co-owners. The court held that a partition could be made, but only if it was done in a manner that was fair and equitable to both parties. The court noted that the partition should be made in such a way that each party receives an equal share of the property, and that the partition should not be made in a way that would be detrimental to either party. The court also noted that the partition should be made in a way that would not cause any unnecessary hardship or expense to either party.
