Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving San Dimas

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Los Angeles County are exceptionally experienced in the area of California partition actions. California partition actions provide a legal mechanism for co-owners of real property to divide the property among themselves. The partition statutes allow a co-owner to file a lawsuit in court to have the property divided, either physically or by sale. The court will then order the division of the property in a way that is fair and equitable to all parties. The partition statutes also provide that any proceeds from the sale of the property must be divided among the co-owners in proportion to their respective interests in the property.

Our team of partition attorneys can assist co-owners with frequently asked questions about partitions, such as:

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    Schoonover v. Birnbaum – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Schoonover v. Birnbaum, 150 Cal. 734 (1907), the California Supreme Court was asked to decide whether a partition of real property was valid. The dispute arose when two brothers, John and William Schoonover, inherited a parcel of land from their father. The brothers agreed to divide the land into two equal parts, with John taking the northern half and William taking the southern half. However, when the partition was completed, it was discovered that the two halves were not equal in size. William’s portion was larger than John’s, and John argued that the partition was invalid. The court ultimately held that the partition was valid, but that William was required to pay John for the difference in value between the two portions. This case highlights the importance of ensuring that a partition of real property is done correctly, as any discrepancies can lead to costly disputes.
