Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Encinitas
Talkov Law’s attorneys serving San Diego 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 resolve disputes over the division of the property. The partition statutes provide that the court may order a partition of the property if the co-owners cannot agree on a division. The court may also order the sale of the property and the division of the proceeds among the co-owners. The partition statutes also provide that the court may award attorney’s fees and costs to the prevailing party in a partition action.
Our team of partition attorneys can assist co-owners with frequently asked questions about partitions, such as:
- When is a partition action right for my dispute? Generally, parties who can reach their own resolution of a co-ownership dispute are not reading websites about partition law. If you are reading this article, chances are that your co-ownership dispute has reached a level where legal options are being considered. Filing a partition action will bring about a certain result to the co-ownership dispute, rather than letting it linger for years on end. However, if the parties are very close to a settlement, it may be wise to consider a resolution.
- 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.
- How does a partition action work in California?
- 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.
- 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.
Maier v. Boyle – Partition Action Case Study
In the legal case of Maier v. Boyle, 44 Cal.App.2d 698 (1941), the issue was whether a partition of real property was valid. The plaintiff, Maier, owned a parcel of land with two other individuals, Boyle and another person. Maier and Boyle agreed to partition the land, with Maier taking one portion and Boyle taking the other. The third person was not a party to the agreement. Maier then filed a partition action in court to have the agreement enforced. The court found that the partition was invalid because it was not made in accordance with the law. The court held that a partition of real property must be made by all of the owners of the property, and not just two of them. Therefore, the partition agreement between Maier and Boyle was not valid and could not be enforced.
