Sacramento Partition Lawyers

Sacramento is the capital of the State of California, and the largest city in the Central Valley. Like many places throughout California, many Sacramento residents find themselves needing to move from a chaotic real estate situation to a fresh start with the equity from the property.

For example, one of our clients found herself owning property with her ex-boyfriend that they had originally purchased together as a place for both of them to live. Although our client had purchased the property using some of her boyfriend's money for the to purchase it, she was ultimately able to retain ownership merely through the repayment of the down payment after substantial negotiations.

A partition action generally has four parts. It begins with a determination of the parties' ownership interests, then there is a determination of credits and debits called an accounting, a sale of the property, and finally a dispersal of funds based on the parties' interests and their relative claims for contribution to the property. While there are well-defined parts to the process, there are many twists and turns to a partition action for which an inexperienced lawyer may be unaware. An experienced Sacramento Partition Attorney can help guide a property owner through this process.

Sacramento is home to the National Basketball Association's Kings, the United Soccer League's Republic FC, and San Francisco Giant's Minor League Baseball AAA affiliate, the Sacramento Rivercats. Sacramento is also home to California State University, Sacramento, and the University of California campus at Davis, California.

Situated at the confluence of the Sacramento and American Rivers, Sacramento is known for its gold rush history, its firm place in California government and politics, the region's agricultural success, and its central location close to Napa, Lake Tahoe, and San Francisco.

When jointly owned real estate becomes too much of a problem, many people have found that a partition action can be a good solution. At that point, a Sacramento Partition Lawyer can be of great assistance.

Originally, the first European to visit the Sacramento area was the Spanish cavalry officer Gabriel Moraga, who drank from the Sacramento River, and described it as being sweet like the Catholic Eucharist, the Santisimo Sacramento. Then, Sacramento came to prominence during the California Gold Rush in the 1850s.

Throughout, the Sacramento Partition Lawyers at the Underwood Law Firm, P.C. are persistent in seeking the best deal possible for our clients and ensuring that the process concluded as quickly as reasonably practical.
