California Code of Civil Procedure 872.640 is the California partition statute that describes what courts will do in the event that multiple parties are unknown. The statute provides that:
Where two or more parties are unknown, the court may consider their interests together in the action and not as between each other.California Code of Civil Procedure 872.640
When one or more parties in a partition action are unknown, California law allows for the interests of these parties to be combined. This allows co-owners to more efficiently file a partition action against any unknown parties.
