Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Commerce

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Los Angeles County are exceptionally experienced in the area of California partition actions. California partition actions provide a legal mechanism for co-owners of real property to divide the property among themselves. The partition statutes allow a co-owner to file a lawsuit in court to have the property divided, either physically or by sale. The court will then order the division of the property in a way that is fair and equitable to all parties. The partition statutes also provide that any proceeds from the sale of the property must be divided among the co-owners in proportion to their respective interests in the property.

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

  • Do I need to go to court to win a partition action? While the partition action must be filed with the court, partition actions rarely involve a trial in which the co-owners appear at court. This means it is extremely unlikely that you will need to step foot in a courtroom. Most partition work is done by motion practice involving tentative rulings with little interaction between the court and the attorneys, let alone the co-owners.
  • What types of properties can be subject to a partition action in California? All co-owned real or personal property can be partitioned under California law. Cal. Civ. Proc. Code § 872.020.
  • Can a partition action be filed for both real property and personal property in California? Yes, all co-owned real and personal property can be partitioned under California law. Cal. Civ. Proc. Code § 872.020.
  • How does a partition action work in California?
  • Can I recover my attorney’s fees in a partition action? Yes, you can recover your legal fees in a partition action through a motion for attorney’s fees. However, most partitions settle, and most settlements involve a walk-away of attorney’s fees, meaning it important to hire a partition attorney who will handle the matter efficiently since each party is likely to pay their own fees.

    In re Marriage of LeSage – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of In re Marriage of LeSage, 2007 WL 4200962, B189730 (29-Nov-2007) , the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The parties had entered into a marital settlement agreement (MSA) that provided for the division of their community property. The MSA provided that the parties would each receive a 50% interest in the community property, but that the husband would receive a larger share of the proceeds from the sale of the property. The wife argued that the MSA was invalid because it did not provide for a partition of the community property, as required by California law. The court agreed with the wife, finding that the MSA did not provide for a partition of the community property and was therefore invalid. The court ordered the parties to enter into a partition agreement that would divide the community property in accordance with California law.
