Ready to Partition Your Property’s Ownership?

Co-owning property with a loved one, friend, or business partner can be extremely beneficial, but what happens if things start to go south? Whether you and the co-owner are no longer on good terms or joint ownership no longer serves your needs, a partition action may be involved. However, this doesn’t mean you’ll automatically have to go to court. You have options.

A partition action is a lawsuit wherein the parties involved want to change the current ownership of their shared property. If you are facing an action for partition or you are looking to partition your property, we strive to help you avoid the courtroom by selling your property share, buying the other property shares, and more.

Changing the ownership structure of a piece of jointly owned property can potentially lead to unnecessary expenses and disputes. Let us help you avoid those frustrations.
