Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Huntington Park
Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Los Angeles 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 allow co-owners to divide the property either by agreement or by court order. If the co-owners cannot agree on how to divide the property, then the court will divide the property in a way that is fair and equitable to all parties. The partition statutes also provide that any partition of the property must be in accordance with the laws of the state of California. The legal effect is that these statutes provide a legal mechanism for co-owners to divide their property without having to go through the court system.
Our team of partition attorneys can assist co-owners with frequently asked questions about partitions, such as:
- Who can file a partition action in California? Generally, any co-owner of real property can file a partition action.
- What is the timeline for a California partition action? Most partition actions are resolved in 3 to 6 months by way of settlement. Other cases can take 6 to 12 months to obtain an interlocutory judgment of partition, which generally appoints a referee to sell the property.
- 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.
- What is a partition action and when is it necessary?
- 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.
Middlecoff v. Cronise – Partition Action Case Study
In the legal case of Middlecoff v. Cronise, 155 Cal. 185 (1909), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The case involved two parties, Middlecoff and Cronise, who had inherited a piece of real estate from their father. The two parties had agreed to divide the property into two equal parts, but Cronise had failed to do so. Middlecoff then filed a lawsuit against Cronise, seeking a court order to compel him to partition the property. The court ultimately ruled in favor of Middlecoff, ordering Cronise to partition the property as agreed. The case serves as an example of the importance of properly partitioning inherited property in order to avoid potential legal disputes.
