Experienced Partition Attorneys Serving Rancho Cucamonga
Talkov Law’s attorneys serving San Bernardino 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:
- Can I recover my attorney’s fees in a partition action? Yes, you can recover your legal fees in a partition action through a motion for attorney’s fees. However, most partitions settle, and most settlements involve a walk-away of attorney’s fees, meaning it important to hire a partition attorney who will handle the matter efficiently since each party is likely to pay their own fees.
- How long will it take to get the property partitioned and sold? Most commonly, 3 to 6 months is all that it takes for the defendant to agree to a sale or buyout the plaintiff’s interest in the property for a fair value. Some cases may take 6 to 12 months.
- Can a partition action be filed for both real property and personal property in California? Yes, all co-owned real and personal property can be partitioned under California law. Cal. Civ. Proc. Code § 872.020.
- What are my partition rights for inherited property? Co-owners of inherited property generally have the absolute right to force the sale of the property through a partition action.
- What is a partition action and when is it necessary?

Cohen v. Karubian – Partition Action Case Study
In the legal case of Cohen v. Karubian, 276 Cal.App.2d 44 (1969), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The case involved a dispute between two co-owners of a single parcel of real property. The plaintiff, Cohen, sought to partition the property, while the defendant, Karubian, argued that the property should not be partitioned. The court ultimately held that the property should be partitioned, but the decision was based on the fact that the parties had not agreed to a different arrangement. The court noted that the parties had not agreed to a joint tenancy, tenancy in common, or any other form of co-ownership, and thus the only option was to partition the property. The court also noted that the parties had not agreed to any other form of partition, such as a sale or exchange of the property. As such, the court held that the only option was to partition the property.
