Experienced Real Estate Partition Action 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 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 happens to any debts or liens on the property during a partition action? Secured debts are paid from the sale of the property. Secured lenders named in a partition action are generally dismissed with an agreement to pay the mortgage at the time of the sale.
  • What to expect in a California partition action? Partition actions necessarily resolve the conflict between co-owners through an expedited statutory process. A capable partition attorney will assist in expediting the process and producing the most favorable outcome.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • What is the timeline for a California partition action? Most partition actions are resolved in 3 to 6 months by way of settlement. Other cases can take 6 to 12 months to obtain an interlocutory judgment of partition, which generally appoints a referee to sell the property.

    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.
