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. California partition actions allows for the division of real property among co-owners. This statute provides a legal mechanism for co-owners to divide their real property into separate interests. The partition statutes allow for the court to order a partition of the property, either by physically dividing the property or by selling the property and dividing the proceeds among the co-owners. The partition statutes also provide for the court to award damages to any co-owner who has been wrongfully excluded from the property. The partition statutes also allows for the court to award attorney’s fees and costs to the prevailing party.

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

  • Can I be forced into selling a jointly owned house? Under California’s Partition of Real Property Act, a co-owner will have a right to buyout the property. However, absent a buy out at the appraised price, a plaintiff will likely be able to force the sale of a jointly owned house.
  • 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.
  • How will the court in a California partition action determine how much each co-owner will receive from the sales proceeds? Generally, each co-owner will receive their fractional interest in the proceeds of sale based on their ownership interests. However, this amount can be enhanced or diminished by partition offsets whereby one co-owner paid more than their fractional interest for property expenses.
  • Can a Trust File a Partition? Yes, a trust can file a partition action as the co-owner of real property in California.
  • How do I file a partition action? Partition actions must be filed in the county where some or all of the co-owned real property is located by way of a partition complaint. While filing the complaint is relatively easy, reaching the end of the partition as quickly and efficiently as possible requires the skill of an experienced partition attorney.

    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.
