Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Santa Clarita

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:

  • 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.
  • What is a partition action and when is it necessary?
  • What is a partition referee? A partition referee is a neutral third party, often times a lawyer or real estate broker, who completes the sale for the co-owners under court authority. The referee is then paid for their services either on an hourly, flat fee, or commission basis, and is relieved by the court of their duties in the case.
  • How will the property be divided if a partition action is successful? In most partition actions, the property will be sold, rather than being divided. If the property is eligible for partition in-kind, the court can appoint a referee to prepare a report on dividing the property in a manner that does not damage the value of the fractional interests.
  • 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. In rare cases, a property can be divided, through this is not applicable to single family residences with no surplus land.

    Cathcart v. Redlands Sec. Co. – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Cathcart v. Redlands Sec. Co., 67 Cal.App.2d 591 (1945), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The plaintiff, Cathcart, owned a parcel of land with two other individuals, and the defendants, Redlands Security Company, held a mortgage on the property. Cathcart sought to partition the property, but the defendants argued that the partition would be detrimental to their security interest. The court ultimately held that the partition could not be denied, but that the defendants had the right to be compensated for any damages that might result from the partition. The court also held that the defendants had the right to be heard on the issue of damages before the partition was allowed to proceed.
