Experienced Partition Attorneys Serving Shasta County
Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Shasta 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:
- Can you lose interest in a jointly owned home by moving out? Generally, co-owners maintain their ownership interests regardless of whether they live at the property. However, in rare cases, leaving the property for many years without paying taxes or other expenses may allow the co-owners in possession to argue that they have adversely possessed the property. Generally, these co-ownership disputes do not get easier with time, so it is important to act promptly.
- What is California’s Partition of Real Property Act? Effective January 1, 2023, California’s new partition law allows defendants to buy out the interests of the plaintiff at an appraised value.
- 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.
- What are the different types of partition in California? Almost all partition actions are partition by sale, though partition in-kind allows the property to be divided, while a partition by appraisal allows the purchase by one-co-owner at an appraised value.
- What are the tax implications of a partition action? It is best to seek the advice of a tax attorney or CPA about tax issues. However, the most common tax issues in partitions, like other sales, can involve capital gains taxes and the potential partial or full reassessment of property taxes.

Clough v. Compton-Delevan Irr. Dist. – Partition Action Case Study
In the legal case of Clough v. Compton-Delevan Irr. Dist., 12 Cal.2d 385 (1938), the issue was whether a partition of a parcel of land was valid. The parcel of land was owned by two parties, Clough and Compton-Delevan Irrigation District. Clough wanted to partition the land, while Compton-Delevan Irrigation District argued that the partition was invalid because it would interfere with the district’s irrigation system. The court ultimately held that the partition was valid, but that the district was entitled to compensation for any damages caused by the partition. The court also held that the district was entitled to an injunction to prevent any further interference with its irrigation system.
