Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Los Angeles

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:

  • How will the property be divided if a partition action is successful? In most partition actions, the property will be sold, rather than being divided. If the property is eligible for partition in-kind, the court can appoint a referee to prepare a report on dividing the property in a manner that does not damage the value of the fractional interests.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Will the plaintiff win a California partition action? The plaintiff almost always prevails in a partition. This is because the right to partition is absolute under California law. Most partition actions result in the Defendant agreeing to sell the property or buyout the plaintiff’s interest in the property, which is generally the plaintiff’s goal.
  • Can I still file a partition if my co-owner has filed for bankruptcy? Yes, the partition action can generally be filed in the bankruptcy court or the bankruptcy court can apply state partition law to allow offsets when the co-owned property is sold by the bankruptcy trustee.

    Richmond v. Dofflemyer – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Richmond v. Dofflemyer, 105 Cal.App.3d 745 (1980), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The case involved a dispute between two co-owners of a parcel of real property. The plaintiff, Richmond, owned a one-half interest in the property, while the defendant, Dofflemyer, owned the other half. Richmond sought to partition the property, while Dofflemyer sought to prevent the partition. The court found that the parties had a right to partition the property, but that the partition must be made in a manner that is fair and equitable to both parties. The court noted that the partition must be made in a way that does not prejudice either party, and that the partition must be made in a way that is consistent with the interests of both parties. The court also noted that the partition must be made in a way that does not destroy the value of the property. The court noted that the partition must be made in a way that preserves the value of the property, and that the partition must be made in a way that does not cause either party to suffer an undue hardship. The court also noted that the partition must be made in a way that is consistent with the law. The court noted that the partition must be made in a way that is consistent with the law of partition, and that the partition must be made in a way that is consistent with the law of real property. Finally, the court noted that the partition must be made in a way that is consistent with the interests of the public. The court noted that the partition must be made in a way that is consistent with the public policy of preserving the value of real property, and that the partition must be made in a way that is consistent with the public policy of protecting the rights of co-owners.
