Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving San Diego

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving San Diego 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:

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • What are the potential outcomes of a partition action? The most likely outcome in a partition action is that the plaintiff receives fair value for their interest in the property either through a sale to a third party or to the defendant.

    Anaheim Union Water Co. v. Ashcroft – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Anaheim Union Water Co. v. Ashcroft, 153 Cal. 152 (1908), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The case involved a dispute between Anaheim Union Water Company and the Ashcroft family over the ownership of a parcel of land. The Ashcroft family had purchased the land from the Anaheim Union Water Company, but the company had failed to properly partition the land, resulting in the Ashcroft family owning a portion of the land that was not legally theirs. The court ultimately ruled in favor of the Ashcroft family, finding that the Anaheim Union Water Company had failed to properly partition the land and that the Ashcroft family was entitled to the portion of the land that they had purchased.
