Talkov Law’s attorneys serving Napa County are exceptionally experienced in the area of California partition actions. A California partition action is a law that allows co-owners of real property to divide the property among themselves. The partition statutes provide a legal mechanism for co-owners to divide the property without having to go through the court system. The partition statutes allow co-owners to divide the property either by agreement or by court order. If the co-owners cannot agree on how to divide the property, then the court will divide the property in a way that is fair and equitable to all parties.

The legal effect of the partition statutes is that it provides a legal mechanism for co-owners to divide their property without having to go through the court system.

Our team of partition attorneys can assist co-owners with frequently asked questions about partitions, such as:

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Are there ways to make my partition action less expensive? There are numerous ways to obtain a less expensive partition action in California. For example, having your documents organized can ensure you don’t have to pay your attorney to go through a disorganized mess to get the information they need.
  • Can a Trust File a Partition? Yes, a trust can file a partition action as the co-owner of real property in California.
  • How to force the sale of jointly owned property? A partition action is the only statutory method to ensure the end of the co-ownership dispute.

    Conservatorship of Farrant – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Conservatorship of Farrant, 2019 WL 3955860, 2D CIV. B289203 (22-Aug-2019) , the partition issues revolved around the division of a family trust. The trust was established by the decedent, who had two children, and the trust was to be divided equally between them. However, the decedent’s daughter, the petitioner, argued that the trust should be divided unequally, with her receiving a larger share than her brother. The court ultimately ruled that the trust should be divided equally between the two siblings, as the decedent had intended. The court also noted that the petitioner had failed to provide sufficient evidence to support her claim that the trust should be divided unequally.
