Partition suits are filed when multiple owners of real estate cannot agree as to the sale or division of the property. Partition suits are frequently used as a method of settling the division of real estate among beneficiaries of an estate who cannot agree. One of the interested parties files a suit in the city or county where the property is located asking the Court to intervene. The Judge then makes the decision regarding whether the property should be sold, how it should be sold, and the distribution of the proceeds.
Issues in a partition suit are:
Any and all other pertinent matters such as pro-rating funds expended for improvements, reimbursement for funds expended in the maintenance of the property, and reimbursement of funds used to pay for utilities, homeowners insurance, and real estate taxes.
