Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving West Covina

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:

  • What are the different types of partition in California? Almost all partition actions are partition by sale, though partition in-kind allows the property to be divided, while a partition by appraisal allows the purchase by one-co-owner at an appraised value.
  • Can heirs force the sale of property? Heirs can force the sale of real property in California once that property is distributed to them. However, sometimes, the property is still held in a trust where the trustee will sell the property. When there is no trust, the probate court may decide that the probate administrator will sell the property before it is distributed in fractional interests to the heirs.
  • What is a partition referee? A partition referee is a neutral third party, often times a lawyer or real estate broker, who completes the sale for the co-owners under court authority. The referee is then paid for their services either on an hourly, flat fee, or commission basis, and is relieved by the court of their duties in the case.
  • How does a partition action work in California?
  • Can a partition action be stopped? Generally, a partition action cannot be stopped, but a defendant may be able to buy time to seek a resolution. Eventually, however, the plaintiff can generally force the sale of the property based on the absolute right to partition.

    Goodale v. Fifteenth Dist. Court – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Goodale v. Fifteenth Dist. Court, 6 P.C.L.J. 391 (1880), the issue was whether a partition of real estate could be made without the consent of all the parties involved. The plaintiff, Goodale, owned a piece of real estate with two other parties, and he wanted to partition the land without the consent of the other two parties. The court held that a partition of real estate could not be made without the consent of all the parties involved. The court reasoned that a partition of real estate was a contract between the parties, and that all parties must agree to the terms of the contract in order for it to be valid. The court also noted that a partition of real estate was a matter of public policy, and that it was necessary to protect the rights of all parties involved.
