Our team of partition attorneys can assist co-owners with frequently asked questions about partitions, such as:
- What is a partition action and when is it necessary?
- 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.
- Who can file a partition action in California? Generally, any co-owner of real property can file a partition action.
- Will there be a trial in a California partition action? Trials are extremely rare in partition actions because the interlocutory judgment procedure allows for a partition referee to be appointed by meeting just a few elements that rarely involve live testimony from witnesses. Even if a trial occurred, it would almost certainly relate only to the ownership interests or the distribution of proceeds, though most cases are decided on motion heard by the court based on the papers submitted by the parties.
- What is recoverable in a partition action? “In a suit for partition it is a general rule that all equities and conflicting claims existing between the parties and arising out of their relation to the property to be partitioned may be adjusted.” Demetris v. Demetris (1954) 125 Cal. App. 2d 440. This means that co-owners can assert offsets or recover payments of the mortgage, taxes, insurance, repairs and improvements in excess of their fractional interests.
Gay v. Parpart – Partition Action Case Study
In the legal case of Gay v. Parpart, 106 U.S. 679 (1883), the issue was whether a partition of real estate could be made without the consent of all the owners. The case involved a dispute between two brothers, John and William Gay, over the partition of their father’s real estate. William had sold his interest in the property to a third party, and John sought to partition the property without William’s consent. The Supreme Court held that a partition of real estate could not be made without the consent of all the owners, and that William’s sale of his interest did not constitute consent to the partition.
