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:
- When is a partition action right for my dispute? Generally, parties who can reach their own resolution of a co-ownership dispute are not reading websites about partition law. If you are reading this article, chances are that your co-ownership dispute has reached a level where legal options are being considered. Filing a partition action will bring about a certain result to the co-ownership dispute, rather than letting it linger for years on end. However, if the parties are very close to a settlement, it may be wise to consider a resolution.
- Will the plaintiff win a California partition action? The plaintiff almost always prevails in a partition. This is because the right to partition is absolute under California law. Most partition actions result in the Defendant agreeing to sell the property or buyout the plaintiff’s interest in the property, which is generally the plaintiff’s goal.
- What is a partition action and when is it necessary?
- What to expect in a California partition action? Partition actions necessarily resolve the conflict between co-owners through an expedited statutory process. A capable partition attorney will assist in expediting the process and producing the most favorable outcome.
- Who can file a partition action in California? Generally, any co-owner of real property can file a partition action.

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.
