Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Stockton

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving San Joaquin 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 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.
  • Who can file a partition action in California? Generally, any co-owner of real property can file a partition action.
  • What are the grounds for a partition action in California? A co-owner is “entitled to partition as a matter of absolute right,” meaning “he need not assign any reason for his demand; that it is sufficient if he demands a severance; and that when grounds for a sale are duly established it may be demanded as of right. To grant it is not a mere matter of grace.” De Roulet v. Mitchel (1945) 70 Cal.App.2d 120, 123-124.
  • What to expect in a California partition action? Partition actions necessarily resolve the conflict between co-owners through an expedited statutory process. A capable partition attorney will assist in expediting the process and producing the most favorable outcome.
  • 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.

    Bridges v. Bridges – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Bridges v. Bridges, 125 Cal.App.2d 359 (1954), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The case involved a dispute between two siblings over the partition of a family ranch. The plaintiff, the brother, sought to partition the ranch into two separate parcels, while the defendant, the sister, sought to keep the ranch intact. The court ultimately ruled in favor of the plaintiff, finding that the partition of the ranch was necessary to ensure that each sibling received their fair share of the property. The court also noted that the partition would not cause any significant harm to either party, and that it would be in the best interests of both parties to divide the ranch into two separate parcels.
