Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Manhattan Beach

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 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 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.
  • 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 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.
  • Can I be forced into selling a jointly owned house? Under California’s Partition of Real Property Act, a co-owner will have a right to buyout the property. However, absent a buy out at the appraised price, a plaintiff will likely be able to force the sale of a jointly owned house.

    Ryan v. Carter – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Ryan v. Carter, 93 U.S. 78 (1876), the issue was whether a partition of real estate could be made without the consent of all the owners. The case involved a dispute between two brothers, John and William Ryan, who owned a tract of land in common. John wanted to partition the land, but William refused to consent. The Supreme Court held that a partition of real estate could not be made without the consent of all the owners, and that the partition could not be enforced against William. The Court reasoned that a partition of real estate was a matter of contract, and that all the owners must agree to it in order for it to be valid.
