Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Pittsburg

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Contra Costa 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 also provide a way for co-owners to resolve disputes over the division of the property. The partition statutes provide that the court may order a partition of the property if the co-owners cannot agree on a division. The court may also order the sale of the property and the division of the proceeds among the co-owners. The partition statutes also provide that the court may award attorney’s fees and costs to the prevailing party in a partition action.

Our team of partition attorneys can assist co-owners with frequently asked questions about partitions, such as:

  • Do I need to go to court to win a partition action? While the partition action must be filed with the court, partition actions rarely involve a trial in which the co-owners appear at court. This means it is extremely unlikely that you will need to step foot in a courtroom. Most partition work is done by motion practice involving tentative rulings with little interaction between the court and the attorneys, let alone the co-owners.
  • What is a partition action and when is it necessary?
  • 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.
  • How will the property be divided if a partition action is successful? In most partition actions, the property will be sold, rather than being divided. If the property is eligible for partition in-kind, the court can appoint a referee to prepare a report on dividing the property in a manner that does not damage the value of the fractional interests.
  • 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.

    Klein v. Maddox – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Klein v. Maddox, 59 Cal.App.2d 141 (1943), the issue was whether a partition of real property was proper. The plaintiff, Klein, owned a parcel of real property with his brother, Maddox. Klein wanted to partition the property, but Maddox refused. Klein then filed a partition action against Maddox. The trial court found that the partition was proper and ordered the property to be divided. Maddox appealed the decision, arguing that the partition was improper because the property was not susceptible to division. The appellate court affirmed the trial court’s decision, finding that the property was susceptible to division and that the partition was proper. The court also noted that the partition was in the best interests of both parties, as it would allow them to each have their own separate interests in the property.
