- What is the average cost of a partition action? The usual cost for a partition action is about $8,000 to $12,000, depending on the complexity. Some cases settle quickly after the defendant receives the partition complaint, while others can drag on longer if there are more complex issues or delay tactics by the defendant.
- How will the property be divided if a partition action is successful? In most partition actions, the property will be sold, rather than being divided. If the property is eligible for partition in-kind, the court can appoint a referee to prepare a report on dividing the property in a manner that does not damage the value of the fractional interests.

Gerke v. Cameron – Partition Action Case Study
In the legal case of Gerke v. Cameron, 5 Cal.Unrep. 798 (1897), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The case involved a dispute between two co-owners of a piece of real estate. The plaintiff, Gerke, sought to partition the property, while the defendant, Cameron, argued that the property should not be partitioned. The court ultimately ruled in favor of Gerke, finding that the property should be partitioned. The court reasoned that, since the two co-owners had different interests in the property, it was in the best interests of both parties to divide the property into two separate parcels. The court also noted that, since the two co-owners had different interests in the property, it would be difficult to determine the value of the property if it were not partitioned. This case serves as an example of the importance of partition in disputes between co-owners of real estate.
