Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Larkspur

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Marin 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 partition must be done in a fair and equitable manner, and that the court must approve the partition before it can be enforced. The partition statutes also provide that the court may order the sale of the property if the co-owners cannot agree on a partition. The legal effect of the partition statutes is that it provides 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:

  • Will there be a trial in a California partition action? Trials are extremely rare in partition actions because the interlocutory judgment procedure allows for a partition referee to be appointed by meeting just a few elements that rarely involve live testimony from witnesses. Even if a trial occurred, it would almost certainly relate only to the ownership interests or the distribution of proceeds, though most cases are decided on motion heard by the court based on the papers submitted by the parties.
  • How to force the sale of jointly owned property? A partition action is the only statutory method to ensure the end of the co-ownership dispute.
  • How much does a partition action cost? The cost of a partition action can vary widely depending on the complexity of the case. A typical partition action usually costs between $5,000 and $12,000, with about $8,000 being the most common cost. However, difficulty locating a defendant, the motion to appoint a partition referee, delay tactics by defendants, and other issues may raise the cost of your partition action. An experienced partition lawyer can mitigate costs and resolve your co-ownership dispute with maximum efficiency.
  • How does a partition action work in California?
  • What are the costs associated with a partition action? The costs of a partition action generally involve the attorney’s fees, and court costs, but can involve referee fees and broker’s fees if the property is sold.

    Bethel v. Brazil – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Bethel v. Brazil, 2004 WL 1327691, B168968 (15-Jun-2004) , 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.
