Experienced Partition Attorneys Serving Roseville
Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Placer 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.
- What is the timeline for a California partition action? Most partition actions are resolved in 3 to 6 months by way of settlement. Other cases can take 6 to 12 months to obtain an interlocutory judgment of partition, which generally appoints a referee to sell the property.
- What are the steps involved in a partition action in California? The first step is to file a partition complaint in California, which is followed by a request for the court to enter an interlocutory judgment of partition, thereby appointing a partition referee under the partition statutes.
- 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 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.

Donnelly v. Wetzel – Partition Action Case Study
In the legal case of Donnelly v. Wetzel, 37 Cal.App. 741 (1918), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The case involved a dispute between two siblings over the partition of a piece of real estate that had been inherited from their father. The siblings had agreed to divide the property, but the sister, Wetzel, refused to accept the partition and instead sought to have the property sold and the proceeds divided. The court found that the partition was valid and that Wetzel was not entitled to have the property sold. The court also found that Wetzel had acted in bad faith by refusing to accept the partition and that she was liable for damages for her refusal. The court also found that Wetzel was not entitled to any of the proceeds from the sale of the property.
