Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Modesto

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Stanislaus 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:

  • Are there ways to make my partition action less expensive? There are numerous ways to obtain a less expensive partition action in California. For example, having your documents organized can ensure you don’t have to pay your attorney to go through a disorganized mess to get the information they need.
  • Can a minority owner force the sale of a property? There is no requirement for a majority vote for partition. Rather, an co-owner of any interest in property can force the sale.
  • How does a partition action work 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.
  • 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.

    Carlson v. Sullivan – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Carlson v. Sullivan, 146 F. 476 (1906), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The case involved a dispute between two siblings over the partition of their father’s estate. The siblings had inherited the estate from their father, who had died without a will. The siblings disagreed on how the estate should be divided, and the court was asked to decide the issue. The court held that the estate should be divided according to the laws of the state in which the estate was located. The court also held that the siblings should be allowed to partition the estate in whatever manner they saw fit, provided that it was done in a fair and equitable manner. The court also held that the siblings should be allowed to agree on a partition of the estate without the court’s intervention.
