One case noted: “Section 873.790 requires no further action by the court; it directs the referee to execute and record the conveyance or transfer upon fulfillment of the terms of sale. Section 873.960 governs transfer of title in a partition by appraisal rather than by sale.” Solis v. Vallar (1999) 76 Cal.App.4th 710, 713.
