Experienced Partition Attorneys Serving Palmdale
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:
- 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 we negotiate a settlement instead of going through a partition action? We find that the best solution is to file the partition action, then negotiate a settlement. Defendants often reach a more reasonable settlement when they are being advised by a partition attorney who will explain that the plaintiff is very likely to obtain the sale of the property.
- Can a partition action be filed for both real property and personal property in California? Yes, all co-owned real and personal property can be partitioned under California law. Cal. Civ. Proc. Code § 872.020.
- 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.
- When is a partition action right for my dispute? Generally, parties who can reach their own resolution of a co-ownership dispute are not reading websites about partition law. If you are reading this article, chances are that your co-ownership dispute has reached a level where legal options are being considered. Filing a partition action will bring about a certain result to the co-ownership dispute, rather than letting it linger for years on end. However, if the parties are very close to a settlement, it may be wise to consider a resolution.

Davis v. Pacific Imp. Co. – Partition Action Case Study
In the legal case of Davis v. Pacific Imp. Co., 118 Cal. 45 (1897), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The plaintiff, Davis, owned a parcel of land that was divided into two parts by a fence. The defendant, Pacific Imp. Co., owned the land on the other side of the fence. Davis argued that the fence should be removed and the land should be partitioned into two equal parts, with each party receiving one half. Pacific Imp. Co. argued that the fence should remain in place and that Davis should receive the land on his side of the fence, while Pacific Imp. Co. should receive the land on their side of the fence. The court ultimately ruled in favor of Davis, ordering that the fence be removed and the land be partitioned into two equal parts.
