Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Norco

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Riverside 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 allow co-owners to divide the property either by agreement or by court order. If the co-owners cannot agree on how to divide the property, then the court will divide the property in a way that is fair and equitable to all parties. The partition statutes also provide that any partition of the property must be in accordance with the laws of the state of California. 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:

  • How long will it take to get the property partitioned and sold? Most commonly, 3 to 6 months is all that it takes for the defendant to agree to a sale or buyout the plaintiff’s interest in the property for a fair value. Some cases may take 6 to 12 months.
  • 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.
  • What types of properties can be subject to a partition action in California? All co-owned real or personal property can be partitioned under California law. Cal. Civ. Proc. Code § 872.020.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    Thomas v. Witte – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Thomas v. Witte, 214 Cal.App.2d 322 (1963), the issue was whether a partition of real property was valid. The plaintiff, Thomas, owned a parcel of real property with his brother, Witte. Thomas wanted to partition the property, but Witte refused. Thomas then filed a partition action against Witte. The trial court found that the partition was valid and ordered the property to be divided. Witte appealed, arguing that the partition was invalid because it was not done in accordance with the California Code of Civil Procedure. The appellate court agreed with Witte and reversed the trial court’s decision, holding that the partition was invalid because it did not comply with the statutory requirements. The court also held that the partition was invalid because it did not provide for the equal division of the property.
