Experienced Real Estate Partition Action 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 awarding each co-owner a certain percentage of the property’s value. The court will then order the property to be divided according to the co-owners’ wishes. The partition statutes also provide that if the court finds that a physical division of the property is not possible, it may order the property to be sold and the proceeds divided among the co-owners.

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

  • How long does a partition action take in California?” Most partition actions are complete in 3 to 6 months because most cases settle in either a buyout or agreed sale. However, some cases can drag on for 6 to 12 months.
  • Can a partition action be stopped? Generally, a partition action cannot be stopped, but a defendant may be able to buy time to seek a resolution. Eventually, however, the plaintiff can generally force the sale of the property based on the absolute right to partition.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • How to force the sale of jointly owned property? A partition action is the only statutory method to ensure the end of the co-ownership dispute.

    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.
