Fremont Partition Lawyers

Fremont is a city in Alameda County, located in the East Bay. It is the closest East Bay city to the high-tech Silicon Valley network of businesses and has a strong tech industry presence. Like any rapidly growing community, residents of Fremont often find themselves trapped in joint ownership of property when one co-owner wants to sell, but the other co-owners do not want to sell their ownership rights. Luckily, a Fremont Partition Lawyer can tell you that any co-owner has the absolute right to divide the property and sell their portion with the legal remedy of “Partition.”

A partition action is a lawsuit that forces the sale of ownership in court. In California, the Civil Code of Procedure allows three different methods of partition: partition by sale, partition by appraisal, and partition by division in kind. However, deciding the best type of partition can be difficult, so meeting with a Fremont Partition Attorney can help guide the property owners’ best interest.

There are at least four scenarios where a Fremont Partition Lawyer can be helpful:

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

Each of these scenarios presents different challenges and considerations. Although mediation is an excellent tool for bringing owners together to resolve issues as smoothly as possible, that is not always possible. In such cases, contacting a Fremont Partition Lawyer may be better done sooner rather than later.

Fremont is where Apple made its first Mac computers and where Tesla has its main factory, making it the city’s largest employer.

Fremont is home to various cultural, historical, and leisure attractions, including the Fremont Festival of Arts, the Fremont Symphony Orchestra, the Museum of Local History, and the Mission San Jose and Museum. The Essanay Film Company was once located in Fremont and such culture has been preserved by the Niles Essany Silent Film Museum, which hosts weekly film screenings.

For those who enjoy the outdoors, Mission Peak and the surrounding hillsides have a challenging set of trails well utilized by the active community. Central Park is also a go-to spot for outdoor activities. The park is next to the 80-acre Lake Elizabeth and is backdropped by the fantastic views of the Mission Peak Hills.

Fremont was an agricultural community in the 1800s. It expanded rapidly during the Gold Rush in the 1850s and then again in the 1950s when General Motors built an automobile plant in the city. Incorporated in 1956, Fremont was created as a merger of five localities: Mission San Jose, Centerville, Niles, Irvington, and Warm Springs. The city is named after John C. Fremont, a general who helped lead the American Conquest of California and who later served as Military Governor of California and U.S. Senator.
