Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Tuolumne County

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Tuolumne County are exceptionally experienced in the area of California partition actions. California partition actions provide a legal mechanism for co-owners of real property to divide the property among themselves. The partition statutes allow a co-owner to file a lawsuit in court to have the property divided, either physically or by sale. The court will then order the division of the property in a way that is fair and equitable to all parties. The partition statutes also provide that any proceeds from the sale of the property must be divided among the co-owners in proportion to their respective interests in the property.

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

  • 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.

    Montoya v. Gonzales – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Montoya v. Gonzales, 232 U.S. 375 (1914), the Supreme Court of the United States was asked to decide whether a partition of land between two parties was valid. The dispute arose when the plaintiff, Montoya, purchased a tract of land from the defendant, Gonzales. Montoya then sought to partition the land into two separate parcels, one for himself and one for Gonzales. Gonzales objected to the partition, arguing that the land was not legally divisible. The Supreme Court ultimately held that the partition was valid, finding that the land was divisible and that the parties had agreed to the partition. The Court also noted that the partition was in the best interests of both parties. The case is important because it established the legal principle that land can be partitioned, even if it is not legally divisible.
