Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Saratoga

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Santa Clara 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 is the average cost of a partition action? The usual cost for a partition action is about $8,000 to $12,000, depending on the complexity. Some cases settle quickly after the defendant receives the partition complaint, while others can drag on longer if there are more complex issues or delay tactics by the defendant.
  • How long does a partition action take in California?” Most partition actions are complete in 3 to 6 months because most cases settle in either a buyout or agreed sale. However, some cases can drag on for 6 to 12 months.
  • What is the timeline for a California partition action? Most partition actions are resolved in 3 to 6 months by way of settlement. Other cases can take 6 to 12 months to obtain an interlocutory judgment of partition, which generally appoints a referee to sell the property.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    Southern Adjustment Bureau, Inc. v. Nelson – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Southern Adjustment Bureau, Inc. v. Nelson, 230 Cal.App.2d 539 (1964), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The plaintiff, Southern Adjustment Bureau, Inc., sought to partition a parcel of real property that was owned by the defendant, Nelson. The defendant argued that the property was not subject to partition because it was held in joint tenancy with right of survivorship. The court held that the property was subject to partition because the joint tenancy had been severed by the defendant’s conveyance of his interest in the property to a third party. The court also held that the defendant was not entitled to any compensation for the partition of the property because he had voluntarily conveyed his interest in the property.
