Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Clovis

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Fresno 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 California’s Partition of Real Property Act? Effective January 1, 2023, California’s new partition law allows defendants to buy out the interests of the plaintiff at an appraised value.
  • Will the plaintiff win a California partition action? The plaintiff almost always prevails in a partition. This is because the right to partition is absolute under California law. Most partition actions result in the Defendant agreeing to sell the property or buyout the plaintiff’s interest in the property, which is generally the plaintiff’s goal.
  • Can I be forced into selling a jointly owned house? Under California’s Partition of Real Property Act, a co-owner will have a right to buyout the property. However, absent a buy out at the appraised price, a plaintiff will likely be able to force the sale of a jointly owned house.
  • 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.
  • Can a Trust File a Partition? Yes, a trust can file a partition action as the co-owner of real property in California.

    Frazee v. Railroad Commission of California – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Frazee v. Railroad Commission of California, 185 Cal. 690 (1921), the issue was whether the Railroad Commission of California had the authority to partition a railroad right-of-way into two separate parcels. The plaintiff, Frazee, argued that the Commission had exceeded its authority in doing so, as the right-of-way was granted to the railroad company as a single parcel. The court ultimately held that the Commission had the authority to partition the right-of-way, as the right-of-way was granted to the railroad company for the purpose of constructing a railroad, and the Commission had the authority to regulate the construction of railroads.
