Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Rancho Cordova

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Sacramento 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 allow co-owners to divide the property either by agreement or by court order. If the co-owners cannot agree on how to divide the property, then the court will divide the property in a way that is fair and equitable to all parties. The partition statutes also provide that any partition of the property must be done in accordance with the laws of the state of California. The legal effect of the partition statutes is that it provides a legal mechanism for co-owners to divide their property without having to go through the court system.

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

  • Who can file a partition action in California? Generally, any co-owner of real property can file a partition action.
  • Can I still file a partition if my co-owner has filed for bankruptcy? Yes, the partition action can generally be filed in the bankruptcy court or the bankruptcy court can apply state partition law to allow offsets when the co-owned property is sold by the bankruptcy trustee.
  • 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 types of properties can be subject to a partition action in California? All co-owned real or personal property can be partitioned under California law. Cal. Civ. Proc. Code § 872.020.
  • What are the grounds for a partition action in California? A co-owner is “entitled to partition as a matter of absolute right,” meaning “he need not assign any reason for his demand; that it is sufficient if he demands a severance; and that when grounds for a sale are duly established it may be demanded as of right. To grant it is not a mere matter of grace.” De Roulet v. Mitchel (1945) 70 Cal.App.2d 120, 123-124.

    Kershman v. Kershman – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Kershman v. Kershman, 192 Cal.App.2d 23 (1961), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The case involved a dispute between two siblings over the partition of a family home. The siblings had inherited the home from their parents, and the plaintiff, the brother, wanted to partition the home so that each sibling could have their own separate residence. The defendant, the sister, argued that the partition would be detrimental to the value of the home and that it should remain undivided. The court ultimately ruled in favor of the plaintiff, finding that the partition of the home was necessary to protect the interests of both siblings. The court also noted that the partition would not necessarily reduce the value of the home, as the siblings could still use the home as a rental property.
