Experienced Partition Attorneys Serving Placer County
Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Placer 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 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.
- Can a Trust File a Partition? Yes, a trust can file a partition action as the co-owner of real property in California.
- 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.
- 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 are the costs associated with a partition action? The costs of a partition action generally involve the attorney’s fees, and court costs, but can involve referee fees and broker’s fees if the property is sold.

Bodden v. Community Nat. Bank of Kern County – Partition Action Case Study
In the legal case of Bodden v. Community Nat. Bank of Kern County, 271 Cal.App.2d 432 (1969), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The case involved a dispute between two siblings, Bodden and her brother, over the ownership of a parcel of land that had been inherited from their father. Bodden argued that the land should be partitioned, while her brother argued that the land should remain undivided. The court ultimately ruled in favor of Bodden, finding that the land should be partitioned. The court held that the partition of the land was necessary to ensure that each sibling received their fair share of the inheritance. The court also noted that partition was necessary to prevent one sibling from taking advantage of the other.
