Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Half Moon Bay

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving San Mateo 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:

  • 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.
  • Can a partition action be stopped? Generally, a partition action cannot be stopped, but a defendant may be able to buy time to seek a resolution. Eventually, however, the plaintiff can generally force the sale of the property based on the absolute right to partition.
  • Who can file a partition action in California? Generally, any co-owner of real property can file a partition action.
  • 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 type of relief can be granted by the court in a partition action? A partition action generally involves the sale or division of the property, along with an accounting of offsets.

    Bethel v. Brazil – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Bethel v. Brazil, 2006 WL 122085, B179268 (18-Jan-2006) , the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The case involved a dispute between two siblings, Bethel and Brazil, over the partition of their deceased mother’s estate. Bethel argued that the estate should be divided equally between the two siblings, while Brazil argued that the estate should be divided according to the terms of their mother’s will. The court ultimately ruled in favor of Bethel, finding that the will was invalid and that the estate should be divided equally between the two siblings. The court also found that Brazil had acted in bad faith by attempting to use the will to gain an unfair advantage over Bethel.
