Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Tiburon

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Marin 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 force the sale of the property if they cannot agree on how to divide it. The partition statutes also set out the procedures for the sale of the property and how the proceeds of the sale will be divided among the co-owners. The partition statutes also provide for the payment of costs associated with the sale of the property.

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

  • 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.
  • Who can file a partition action in California? Generally, any co-owner of real property can file a partition action.
  • What happens to any debts or liens on the property during a partition action? Secured debts are paid from the sale of the property. Secured lenders named in a partition action are generally dismissed with an agreement to pay the mortgage at the time of the sale.
  • How long will it take for the plaintiff to receive his or her share of the sales proceeds? Usually, the property is marketed for sale or purchased by the defendant in 3 to 6 months. If a referee is appointed, that may take 6 to 9 months. With proper drafting of an interlocutory judgment of partition by sale, the referee can be required to disburse the proceeds promptly at the close of escrow or shortly thereafter.
  • 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.

    Zhang v. Li – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Zhang v. Li, 2019 WL 441936, B279399 (5-Feb-2019) , the partition issues revolved around the ownership of a property located in Los Angeles County, California. The property was owned by both Zhang and Li, who had entered into a written agreement in which they agreed to equally share the ownership of the property. However, Li had failed to make payments on the mortgage and taxes for the property, and Zhang had been paying the mortgage and taxes in full. Zhang then filed a partition action, seeking to divide the property into two separate parcels and to have Li pay her back for the mortgage and taxes she had paid. The court found that the written agreement between Zhang and Li was valid and enforceable, and that Zhang was entitled to a partition of the property. The court also ordered Li to pay Zhang back for the mortgage and taxes she had paid.
