California Code of Civil Procedure 873.240 is the California partition statute that describes how property will be physically divided in a partition lawsuit. The statute provides that:

Where real property consists of more than one distinct lot or parcel, the property shall be divided by such lots or parcels without other internal division to the extent that it can be done without material injury to the rights of the parties.

When partition in kind is determined to be an equitable remedy, the property will be divided by lot or parcel lines when available and appropriate, meaning one co-owner may receive certain parcels while the other co-owner would receive other parcels.
