Arden-Arcade Partition Lawyers

Arden-Arcade, located in the heart of Sacramento County, is an unincorporated district specializing in commerce. It is east of the city of Sacramento and west of the community of Carmichael. When multiple property owners of property do not agree about whether to sell real estate, then a partition action helmed by an Arden Partition Lawyer may be a good solution.

There are at least four different ways where a partition action should be considered:

  • Boyfriend-Girlfriend co-ownership of property;
  • Sibling-Sibling co-ownership of property;
  • Parent-Child co-ownership of property;
  • Investor-Investor co-ownership of property;

In each of these situations, a joint owner of property may find themselves feeling like they are held "hostage" to the whims of the other joint owner. This can feel incredibly chaotic and hopeless for individuals who find themselves in a bad situation, and are simply ready to move-on with their lives. For people who find themselves in these situations, a partition action can be just the remedy they need. An experienced Arden Partition Attorney can help guide you through that process.

In a partition action, a court simply orders that the property be sold after determining each of the parties' interests. Generally, the determination of interests can be a relatively easy and straightforward process that occurs by reference to title, or by examining a grant deed.

Arden-Arcade is home to the Country Club Plaza, the Arden Fair Mall, and the Town and Country Village, a specialty shopping venue that traces its existence back to the 1940s. The Village was the first shopping center west of the Mississippi River.

Arden-Arcade is economically and ethnically diverse. The district has neighborhoods along the American River and the American River Parkway with million-dollar homes. In 1984, a new California governor's mansion was built for Ronald Reagan in Arden-Arcade but sold as a private residence in 2004. The community also has mid-century neighborhoods that were built in the 1950s. The Arden Middle School is among the oldest surviving buildings in the area, built-in 1914.

Modern day Arden-Arcade was first inhabited by a group of Native Americans called the Nisenan. The land was part of a Mexican land grant deeded to John Sutter, the Rancho del Paso. From 1862 to 1905, James Ben Ali Haggin managed the Rancho and later transferred it to Orlando Robertson. The name "Arden" is thought to come from the fact that Robertson was originally from Arden Hills, Minnesota. The name "Arcade" is believed to come from the fact there was an arcade of native oak trees in the area.

In those situations when title is unclear, then a knowledgeable Arden Partition Lawyer can be an invaluable part of the process. Once title is determined, then an Arden Partition Attorney who is familiar with the process can help the process to go quickly and smoothly by obtaining a court order that the property be sold to the highest bidder. In that process, a property owner will be able to sell the property to the highest bidder and receive the greatest possible value for their real estate interests.

If you find yourself in a joint ownership situation that has run its course, the Arden Partition Lawyers at Underwood Law Firm, P.C. are ready to help you.
