Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Newport Beach

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Orange 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 awarding each co-owner a certain percentage of the property’s value. The court will then order the property to be divided according to the co-owners’ wishes. The partition statutes also provide that if the court finds that a physical division of the property is not possible, it may order the property to be sold and the proceeds divided among the co-owners.

Our team of partition attorneys can assist co-owners with frequently asked questions about partitions, such as:

  • What is a partition action and when is it necessary?
  • Do I need to go to court to win a partition action? While the partition action must be filed with the court, partition actions rarely involve a trial in which the co-owners appear at court. This means it is extremely unlikely that you will need to step foot in a courtroom. Most partition work is done by motion practice involving tentative rulings with little interaction between the court and the attorneys, let alone the co-owners.
  • What are my partition rights for inherited property? Co-owners of inherited property generally have the absolute right to force the sale of the property through a partition action.
  • What is the average cost of a partition action? The usual cost for a partition action is about $8,000 to $12,000, depending on the complexity. Some cases settle quickly after the defendant receives the partition complaint, while others can drag on longer if there are more complex issues or delay tactics by the defendant.
  • What are the tax implications of a partition action? It is best to seek the advice of a tax attorney or CPA about tax issues. However, the most common tax issues in partitions, like other sales, can involve capital gains taxes and the potential partial or full reassessment of property taxes.

    Hughes v. Devlin – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Hughes v. Devlin, 23 Cal. 501 (1863), the California Supreme Court was asked to decide whether a partition of land between two co-owners was valid. The court held that the partition was invalid because the two co-owners had not agreed to the terms of the partition. The court found that the partition was not made in good faith and that the two co-owners had not agreed to the terms of the partition. The court also found that the partition was not made in accordance with the law and that the two co-owners had not taken into consideration the interests of the other co-owner. The court held that the partition was invalid and that the two co-owners must come to an agreement on the terms of the partition.
