Law Revision Commission Comments to California Code of Civil Procedure § 872.020
In 1976, the California Law Revision Commission explained California Code of Civil Procedure § 872.020 as follows:
Section 872.020 is derived from the second sentence of former Section 752a. Owners of both real and personal property may maintain a partition action. See Section 872.210. This title does not apply to property divisions under The Family Law Act or in other types of cases specifically governed by other statutes.
