FLORIDA PARTITION - DIVISION OF REAL PROPERTY

PARTITION LAWSUITS IN FLORIDA

ACTIONS TO DIVIDE REAL PROPERTY BETWEEN OWNERS

FLORIDA REAL ESTATE LAWYERS

When two more people own a single piece of property and they do not agree on how the property should be used, their disagreement is not just between them, but governed by Florida law. Called partition actions, these are lawsuits filed by one title holder or property owner against the other, to have a judge decide as to how the property should be divided.

Because there is no way to literally cut the property in half, the Judge's often either order the sale of the property, or order one party to keep it, while the other is bought out, or paid a price to walk away.

Partition actions are common between business owners, or between a widow or widower, who holds jointly with children of the late spouse who are not her or his own offspring.

Partition actions are a lawsuit and require often negotiation of difficult issues to resolve the matter amicably for all involved, as often they are family m members who merely can not see eye to eye as to what to do with an inherited piece of property.

While not all partition actions result in an equal division, for instance if one of the property owners spent money to improve the property, pay the mortgage, insurance, taxes or other amounts, the court may deem they require reimbursement or a larger percentage share.

Rather then rushing into a complex transaction such as this, have a real estate litigator review your options with you. Often times, when getting an experienced attorney involved, the parties can resolve their differences out of court, avid costly litigation, for the benefit of all involved. This will insure that you are protected.

At the Law Offices of Jacqueline A. Salcines, PA, we are keenly aware of the requirements of partition actions and represent numerous plaintiffs and defendants in these actions. Let our team go to work for you and protect your interests.
