Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Shafter

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Kern 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 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.
  • 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 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.
  • How much does a partition action cost? The cost of a partition action can vary widely depending on the complexity of the case. A typical partition action usually costs between $5,000 and $12,000, with about $8,000 being the most common cost. However, difficulty locating a defendant, the motion to appoint a partition referee, delay tactics by defendants, and other issues may raise the cost of your partition action. An experienced partition lawyer can mitigate costs and resolve your co-ownership dispute with maximum efficiency.
  • Who can file a partition action in California? Generally, any co-owner of real property can file a partition action.

    Aguilera v. Lyons – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Aguilera v. Lyons, 2015 WL 5839779, C071061 (7-Oct-2015) , the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The parties were co-owners of a parcel of real property located in Santa Clara County, California. The plaintiff, Aguilera, sought to partition the property, while the defendant, Lyons, opposed the partition. The court found that the parties had an implied agreement to partition the property, and that the partition should be done in accordance with the California Code of Civil Procedure. The court also found that the partition should be done in a manner that would be fair and equitable to both parties. The court ultimately ordered the partition of the property, and ordered that the parties bear their own costs and expenses associated with the partition.
