Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Davis

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Yolo 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 awarding each co-owner a certain percentage of the property’s value. The court will then order the property to be divided according to the co-owners’ wishes. The partition statutes also provide that if the court finds that a physical division of the property is not possible, it may order the property to be sold and the proceeds divided among the co-owners.

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

  • What are the tax implications of a partition action? It is best to seek the advice of a tax attorney or CPA about tax issues. However, the most common tax issues in partitions, like other sales, can involve capital gains taxes and the potential partial or full reassessment of property taxes.
  • 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 to force the sale of jointly owned property? A partition action is the only statutory method to ensure the end of the co-ownership dispute.
  • What happens to any debts or liens on the property during a partition action? Secured debts are paid from the sale of the property. Secured lenders named in a partition action are generally dismissed with an agreement to pay the mortgage at the time of the sale.
  • What is a partition referee? A partition referee is a neutral third party, often times a lawyer or real estate broker, who completes the sale for the co-owners under court authority. The referee is then paid for their services either on an hourly, flat fee, or commission basis, and is relieved by the court of their duties in the case.

    Lake Vineyard Land & Water Ass’n v. San Gabriel Orange Grove Ass’n – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Lake Vineyard Land & Water Ass’n v. San Gabriel Orange Grove Ass’n, 7 P.C.L.J. 695 (1881), involved a dispute over the partition of a large tract of land in California. The dispute arose when the San Gabriel Orange Grove Association (SGOGA) sought to partition the land into two separate parcels, one for the Lake Vineyard Land & Water Association (LVLWA) and one for SGOGA. The LVLWA objected to the partition, arguing that it would be inequitable and would not provide them with an adequate portion of the land. The court ultimately sided with the LVLWA, ruling that the partition proposed by SGOGA was not equitable and that the LVLWA should receive a larger portion of the land. The court also ruled that the partition should be done in such a way that the LVLWA would receive the most valuable portion of the land.
