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 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:

  • 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.
  • 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 is a partition referee? A partition referee is a neutral third party, often times a lawyer or real estate broker, who completes the sale for the co-owners under court authority. The referee is then paid for their services either on an hourly, flat fee, or commission basis, and is relieved by the court of their duties in the case.
  • What is recoverable in a partition action? “In a suit for partition it is a general rule that all equities and conflicting claims existing between the parties and arising out of their relation to the property to be partitioned may be adjusted.” Demetris v. Demetris (1954) 125 Cal. App. 2d 440. This means that co-owners can assert offsets or recover payments of the mortgage, taxes, insurance, repairs and improvements in excess of their fractional interests.
  • Who can file a partition action in California? Generally, any co-owner of real property can file a partition action.

    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.
