Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Santa Fe Springs
Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Los Angeles 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:
- How do I file a partition action? Partition actions must be filed in the county where some or all of the co-owned real property is located by way of a partition complaint. While filing the complaint is relatively easy, reaching the end of the partition as quickly and efficiently as possible requires the skill of an experienced partition attorney.
- What to expect in a California partition action? Partition actions necessarily resolve the conflict between co-owners through an expedited statutory process. A capable partition attorney will assist in expediting the process and producing the most favorable outcome.
- 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.
- 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
- Do I need to go to court to win a partition action? While the partition action must be filed with the court, partition actions rarely involve a trial in which the co-owners appear at court. This means it is extremely unlikely that you will need to step foot in a courtroom. Most partition work is done by motion practice involving tentative rulings with little interaction between the court and the attorneys, let alone the co-owners.
Schacherbauer v. Sherwood – Partition Action Case Study
In the legal case of Schacherbauer v. Sherwood, 2004 WL 792116, C041575 (13-Apr-2004) , the partition issues revolved around the ownership of a parcel of land located in California. The plaintiff, Schacherbauer, owned a one-half interest in the property, while the defendant, Sherwood, owned the other half. The dispute arose when Schacherbauer sought to partition the property, which would have resulted in the physical division of the land into two separate parcels. Sherwood, however, opposed the partition, arguing that it would be detrimental to the value of the property. The court ultimately ruled in favor of Schacherbauer, finding that the partition was necessary to protect his interest in the property. The court also ordered that the partition be conducted in a manner that would not cause any harm to the value of the property.
