Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving La Verne

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Los Angeles 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 a Trust File a Partition? Yes, a trust can file a partition action as the co-owner of real property in California.
  • What are the steps involved in a partition action in California? The first step is to file a partition complaint in California, which is followed by a request for the court to enter an interlocutory judgment of partition, thereby appointing a partition referee under the partition statutes.
  • 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 California’s Partition of Real Property Act? Effective January 1, 2023, California’s new partition law allows defendants to buy out the interests of the plaintiff at an appraised value.

    Shelton v. Vance – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Shelton v. Vance, 106 Cal.App.2d 194 (1951), the issue was whether a partition of real property was valid. The plaintiffs, the Sheltons, owned a parcel of real property with their brother, the defendant, Vance. The Sheltons sought to partition the property, but Vance objected, claiming that the partition would be inequitable. The court found that the partition was valid, but that the Sheltons were not entitled to a partition of the property in the form they requested. The court held that the partition should be made in a manner that would be equitable to all parties, and that the Sheltons should not be allowed to benefit from the partition at the expense of Vance.
