Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Solano County
Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Solano 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 also provide a way for co-owners to resolve disputes over the division of the property. The partition statutes provide that the court may order a partition of the property if the co-owners cannot agree on a division. The court may also order the sale of the property and the division of the proceeds among the co-owners. The partition statutes also provide that the court may award attorney’s fees and costs to the prevailing party in a partition action.
Our team of partition attorneys can assist co-owners with frequently asked questions about partitions, such as:
- Who can file a partition action in California? Generally, any co-owner of real property can file a partition action.
- 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.
- Are there ways to make my partition action less expensive? There are numerous ways to obtain a less expensive partition action in California. For example, having your documents organized can ensure you don’t have to pay your attorney to go through a disorganized mess to get the information they need.
- Can heirs force the sale of property? Heirs can force the sale of real property in California once that property is distributed to them. However, sometimes, the property is still held in a trust where the trustee will sell the property. When there is no trust, the probate court may decide that the probate administrator will sell the property before it is distributed in fractional interests to the heirs.
- 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.

Bennett v. Potter – Partition Action Case Study
In the legal case of Bennett v. Potter, 180 Cal. 736 (1919), the California Supreme Court was asked to decide whether a partition of real property was valid. The case involved a dispute between two siblings, Bennett and Potter, over the partition of a parcel of land that had been inherited from their father. The court found that the partition was invalid because it was not made in accordance with the law. Specifically, the court found that the partition was not made in accordance with the provisions of the California Civil Code, which required that the partition be made by a court-appointed referee. The court also found that the partition was not made in accordance with the provisions of the California Probate Code, which required that the partition be made by a court-appointed referee and that the partition be approved by the court. The court held that the partition was invalid and that the siblings would have to go back to the drawing board and make a new partition in accordance with the law.
