Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Corte Madera

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Marin 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 also provide a way for co-owners to force the sale of the property if they cannot agree on how to divide it. The partition statutes also set out the procedures for the sale of the property and how the proceeds of the sale will be divided among the co-owners. The partition statutes also provide for the payment of costs associated with the sale of the property.

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

  • What is the average cost of a partition action? The usual cost for a partition action is about $8,000 to $12,000, depending on the complexity. Some cases settle quickly after the defendant receives the partition complaint, while others can drag on longer if there are more complex issues or delay tactics by the defendant.
  • How long does a partition action take in California?” Most partition actions are complete in 3 to 6 months because most cases settle in either a buyout or agreed sale. However, some cases can drag on for 6 to 12 months.
  • What to expect in a California partition action? Partition actions necessarily resolve the conflict between co-owners through an expedited statutory process. A capable partition attorney will assist in expediting the process and producing the most favorable outcome.
  • 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.
  • What are the costs associated with a partition action? The costs of a partition action generally involve the attorney’s fees, and court costs, but can involve referee fees and broker’s fees if the property is sold.

    Flannery v. Murray – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Flannery v. Murray, 2020 WL 4931702, B287284 (24-Aug-2020) , the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The parties were co-owners of a parcel of real property, and the plaintiff sought to partition the property. The defendant argued that the property was not subject to partition because it was held in joint tenancy with right of survivorship. The court found that the property was subject to partition because the parties had not taken any affirmative steps to create a joint tenancy with right of survivorship. The court also found that the defendant had failed to prove that the parties had intended to create a joint tenancy with right of survivorship. The court ultimately ordered the property to be partitioned in accordance with the plaintiff’s request.
