Long Beach Lawyer Handling Partition Actions

A partition action may become necessary in cases where there are multiple owners of a piece of property who cannot agree on how it should be operated or whether it should be sold. Partition actions can be resolved in multiple ways. It is important that you have representation from an attorney with the ability to ensure that the method of resolution is in your best interests.

Understanding California Partition Actions

Generally speaking, there are two primary methods of dividing property in a partition action:

Partition by sale: In a partition by sale, the entire piece of property is sold and the proceeds divided among the owners proportionate to their ownership stake.

Partition by division: In a partition by division, the land is divided into parcels, which are split among the owners. The owners receive parcels that give them a share of the land equivalent to their ownership stake.
