Experienced Real Estate Partition Action Attorneys Serving Yolo County

Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Yolo 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 is recoverable in a partition action? “In a suit for partition it is a general rule that all equities and conflicting claims existing between the parties and arising out of their relation to the property to be partitioned may be adjusted.” Demetris v. Demetris (1954) 125 Cal. App. 2d 440. This means that co-owners can assert offsets or recover payments of the mortgage, taxes, insurance, repairs and improvements in excess of their fractional interests.
  • What types of properties can be subject to a partition action in California? All co-owned real or personal property can be partitioned under California law. Cal. Civ. Proc. Code § 872.020.
  • Who can file a partition action in California? Generally, any co-owner of real property can file a partition action.
  • What is California’s Partition of Real Property Act? Effective January 1, 2023, California’s new partition law allows defendants to buy out the interests of the plaintiff at an appraised value.
  • How long will it take to get the property partitioned and sold? Most commonly, 3 to 6 months is all that it takes for the defendant to agree to a sale or buyout the plaintiff’s interest in the property for a fair value. Some cases may take 6 to 12 months.

    California Bank v. Schlesinger – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of California Bank v. Schlesinger, 159 Cal.App.2d Supp. 854 (1958), the issue of partition was at the center of the dispute. The case involved a dispute between the California Bank and the Schlesinger family over the ownership of a parcel of real estate. The Schlesinger family had purchased the property in 1945, but the California Bank had taken a mortgage on the property in 1947. The Schlesinger family had failed to make payments on the mortgage, and the California Bank had initiated foreclosure proceedings. The Schlesinger family then filed a partition action, seeking to divide the property into two separate parcels, one for the California Bank and one for the Schlesinger family. The California Bank argued that the partition action was improper because the Schlesinger family had no legal interest in the property. The court ultimately held that the Schlesinger family did have a legal interest in the property, and that the partition action was proper. The court also held that the California Bank was entitled to a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the property.
