Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Dixon

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Solano 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:

  • Can we negotiate a settlement instead of going through a partition action? We find that the best solution is to file the partition action, then negotiate a settlement. Defendants often reach a more reasonable settlement when they are being advised by a partition attorney who will explain that the plaintiff is very likely to obtain the sale of the property.
  • Can a Trust File a Partition? Yes, a trust can file a partition action as the co-owner of real property in California.
  • How long will it take for the plaintiff to receive his or her share of the sales proceeds? Usually, the property is marketed for sale or purchased by the defendant in 3 to 6 months. If a referee is appointed, that may take 6 to 9 months. With proper drafting of an interlocutory judgment of partition by sale, the referee can be required to disburse the proceeds promptly at the close of escrow or shortly thereafter.
  • 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 will the property be divided if a partition action is successful? In most partition actions, the property will be sold, rather than being divided. If the property is eligible for partition in-kind, the court can appoint a referee to prepare a report on dividing the property in a manner that does not damage the value of the fractional interests.

    Zaslow v. Kroenert – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Zaslow v. Kroenert, 29 Cal.2d 541 (1946), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The case involved a dispute between two co-owners of a parcel of real property. The plaintiff, Zaslow, sought to partition the property, while the defendant, Kroenert, sought to prevent the partition. The court found that the plaintiff had a right to partition the property, as the two co-owners had an equal right to the property and the partition would not cause any prejudice to either party. The court also found that the defendant had no right to prevent the partition, as the plaintiff had a right to seek partition of the property. The court ultimately ordered the partition of the property, and the two co-owners were able to divide the property in accordance with the court’s order.
