Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Colfax

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Placer County are exceptionally experienced in the area of California partition actions. A California partition action is a law that allows co-owners of real property to divide the property among themselves. The partition statutes provide a legal mechanism for co-owners to divide the property without having to go through the court system. The partition statutes allow co-owners to divide the property either by agreement or by court order. If the co-owners cannot agree on how to divide the property, then the court will divide the property in a way that is fair and equitable to all parties. The partition statutes also provide that any partition of the property must be in accordance with the laws of the state of California. The legal effect is that these statutes provide a legal mechanism for co-owners to divide their property without having to go through the court system.

Our team of partition attorneys can assist co-owners with frequently asked questions about partitions, such as:

    Sykora v. DeMaria – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Sykora v. DeMaria, 2002 WL 31097692, C038281, C037153 (20-Sep-2002) , the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The case involved a dispute between two siblings over the ownership of a family home. The siblings had inherited the home from their parents, and each had a one-half interest in the property. The siblings had been living together in the home for many years, but had recently become estranged. The plaintiff, Sykora, sought to partition the property, which would have resulted in the sale of the home and the division of the proceeds between the siblings. The defendant, DeMaria, opposed the partition, arguing that the home should remain intact and that the siblings should continue to live together in the home. The court ultimately ruled in favor of the plaintiff, ordering the partition of the property and the sale of the home.
