Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving San Carlos

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving San Mateo 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 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:

  • In a partition action, can I be reimbursed for paying more than my fair share of the down payment? Yes, partition actions allow for offsets whereby one co-owner claims excess payments for mortgage, taxes, insurance, improvements, repairs and other property expenses
  • When is a partition action right for my dispute? Generally, parties who can reach their own resolution of a co-ownership dispute are not reading websites about partition law. If you are reading this article, chances are that your co-ownership dispute has reached a level where legal options are being considered. Filing a partition action will bring about a certain result to the co-ownership dispute, rather than letting it linger for years on end. However, if the parties are very close to a settlement, it may be wise to consider a resolution.
  • 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 a partition action and when is it necessary?
  • What happens to any debts or liens on the property during a partition action? Secured debts are paid from the sale of the property. Secured lenders named in a partition action are generally dismissed with an agreement to pay the mortgage at the time of the sale.

    Sousa v. Sinsheimer – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Sousa v. Sinsheimer, 62 Cal.App.2d 107 (1943), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The case involved a dispute between two co-owners of a piece of real property. The plaintiff, Sousa, sought to partition the property, while the defendant, Sinsheimer, argued that partition was not possible because the property was held in joint tenancy. The court ultimately held that partition was not possible because the property was held in joint tenancy, and that the only way to divide the property was through a sale. The court also held that the plaintiff was not entitled to any compensation for his share of the property, as the defendant had already paid for the entire property. This case serves as an example of the difficulties that can arise when two co-owners of a piece of real property are unable to agree on how to divide the property.
