Partition lawsuits arise when there are multiple owners of a piece of property who no longer wish to own the property together.
There can be multiple reasons for this joint ownership. Perhaps siblings inherited a piece of real estate from mom or dad, or maybe a previously married couple never completely divided assets, or, sometimes, old business partners or friends just jointly own a piece of property.
Regardless of the background, typically, one party winds up being saddled with the costs of maintenance and taxes, or liability for a variety of other issues, while the other is an “absentee” owner.
If you have found yourself in such an unfair situation, you have the right to force a change.
