Partition Action

 

A partition action is a legal proceeding to divide real property when a joint owner decides to go his or her separate way.  The proceeding is filed in the county in which the property is located and requests that the court put an end to the multiple ownership so that each party may own a separate portion of the property or, if a division in kind is not feasible, the property may be sold and each owner given an appropriate share of the proceeds.


If you are a co-owner of real estate and would like to have your share purchased or sold, please contact the attorneys at Lawrence J. Bernard, P.A., about a partition action.
