Complaint for Partition of Real Property
A partition involves a court action to divide property. The action usually arises when a property is jointly owned and a dispute arises about how to divide it. The partition statutes govern actions for partition of real property and, in many cases, actions for the partition of personal property. The partition statutes do not apply to property divisions under the Family Law Act or in other types of cases specifically governed by other statutes.
A partition action may be initiated and maintained by a co-owner of personal property or an owner of an estate of inheritance, an estate for life, or an estate for years in real property where such property or estate therein is owned by several persons concurrently or in successive estates. Generally, a partition action may be maintained only by a person having the interest in the property, however, an equitable interest, is sufficient to support a partition action.
