Experienced Partition Attorneys Serving Riverside County
Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Riverside 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 also provide a way for co-owners to resolve disputes over the division of the property. The partition statutes provide that the court may order a partition of the property if the co-owners cannot agree on a division. The court may also order the sale of the property and the division of the proceeds among the co-owners. The partition statutes also provide that the court may award attorney’s fees and costs to the prevailing party in a partition action.
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 a partition action be stopped or dismissed in California? The truth is that there are very few affirmative defenses in a partition action, and those defenses are rarely applied by courts in California.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

Ahr v. Ahr – Partition Action Case Study
In the legal case of Ahr v. Ahr, 153 Cal.App.2d 1 (1957), the issue was whether a partition of real property was valid. The plaintiff, Mrs. Ahr, had inherited a parcel of real property from her father. She and her husband, the defendant, had agreed to partition the property, with Mrs. Ahr receiving one-half of the property and her husband receiving the other half. However, the partition was not properly executed, as the deed was not recorded and the property was not physically divided. The court held that the partition was invalid, as it did not comply with the requirements of the law. The court also held that Mrs. Ahr was entitled to the entire property, as she was the sole owner of the property.
