Partitions and related Probate, Trust and Estate Litigation in St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Tampa and surrounding West Florida areas.
Partitions refer to a severance of ownership interests between concurrent owners of a property. The right to partition is ordinarily available as a matter of general right to any person who has a present ownership in land. Partitions are not typically affected by homestead protections and are not derived from any required contractual rights.
Any co-owner can request that a court partition a property. Partition actions often occur after a parent passes, leaving a property to be owned by multiple beneficiaries. If the co-owners cannot agree what to do with the property, partition is often the only option to allow a co-owner to gain their share of the property’s value.
