Code of Civil Procedure 872.220 CCP – Title Report (Partition Actions)

//

California Code of Civil Procedure 872.220 is the California partition statute that explains how a title report will be obtained in a partition action. The statute provides that:

If it is necessary to have a title report:

(a) The plaintiff may, prior to commencing the action, procure a title report and shall in the complaint indicate this has been done and designate a place where it will be kept for inspection, use, and copying by the parties.

(b) The court may, upon application of a party, authorize the party to procure a title report and shall designate a place where it shall be kept for inspection, use, and copying by the parties.

The statute allows for a plaintiff to obtain a title report before initiating the partition action or, in the alternative, for the court to authorize either party to obtain a title report. Once the report has been obtained, all parties will have access to it throughout the partition action.
