Our team of partition attorneys can assist co-owners with frequently asked questions about partitions, such as:

  • Can I still file a partition if my co-owner has filed for bankruptcy? Yes, the partition action can generally be filed in the bankruptcy court or the bankruptcy court can apply state partition law to allow offsets when the co-owned property is sold by the bankruptcy trustee.
  • What is a partition referee? A partition referee is a neutral third party, often times a lawyer or real estate broker, who completes the sale for the co-owners under court authority. The referee is then paid for their services either on an hourly, flat fee, or commission basis, and is relieved by the court of their duties in the case.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    Lazzarevich v. Lazzarevich – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Lazzarevich v. Lazzarevich, 39 Cal.2d 48 (1952), the issue was whether a partition of real property could be made without the consent of all the owners. The plaintiff, a tenant in common, sought to partition the property without the consent of the other tenant in common, the defendant. The court held that a partition of real property could not be made without the consent of all the owners, and that the plaintiff was not entitled to a partition of the property without the defendant’s consent. The court reasoned that a partition of real property is a matter of contract between the owners, and that the consent of all the owners is necessary for a valid partition.
