Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Vernon

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Los Angeles 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:

  • 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.
  • What is a partition action and when is it necessary?
  • Can you lose interest in a jointly owned home by moving out? Generally, co-owners maintain their ownership interests regardless of whether they live at the property. However, in rare cases, leaving the property for many years without paying taxes or other expenses may allow the co-owners in possession to argue that they have adversely possessed the property. Generally, these co-ownership disputes do not get easier with time, so it is important to act promptly.
  • How does a partition action work in California?
  • Can I recover my attorney’s fees in a partition action? Yes, you can recover your legal fees in a partition action through a motion for attorney’s fees. However, most partitions settle, and most settlements involve a walk-away of attorney’s fees, meaning it important to hire a partition attorney who will handle the matter efficiently since each party is likely to pay their own fees.

    In the legal case of Kenco Investments, Inc. v. Marsh, 2020 WL 3444435, F077602 (24-Jun-2020), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The dispute arose when Kenco Investments, Inc. (Kenco) and Marsh, the owners of a jointly owned property, could not agree on how to divide the property. Kenco sought a court order to partition the property, while Marsh argued that the property should remain undivided. The court ultimately found that the property should be partitioned, and ordered that the property be divided into two separate parcels. The court also ordered that Marsh pay Kenco for the value of the portion of the property that was allocated to Kenco.
