Partition Action


Definition of "Partition action"

Court action to order a compulsory sale of real estate owned jointly between two or more owners. A partition action divides the proceeds of a real estate sale among the joint owners rather than physically dividing the real estate into separate undivided interests. For example, a partition action occurs in an estate dispute between the heirs of the Jack estate where all were granted a tenancy in common for a large parcel. The court ordered the property sold at market value with dividing the proceeds equally among the heirs.
