Experienced Partition Attorneys Serving Pasadena
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.

Drake v. Tucker – Partition Action Case Study
In the legal case of Drake v. Tucker, 43 Cal.App. 53 (1919), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The case involved a dispute between two co-owners of a piece of real estate. The plaintiff, Drake, sought to partition the property, while the defendant, Tucker, argued that the property could not be partitioned because it was a single, indivisible parcel. The court ultimately ruled in favor of Drake, finding that the property could be partitioned, and that Tucker was not entitled to any special rights or privileges with respect to the property. The court also held that the partition should be made in accordance with the laws of the state of California.
