Vallejo Partition Lawyers

Vallejo is a city in Solano County and the second largest city in the North Bay region of the Bay Area. Like many residents in California, Vallejo residents often find that a joint real estate ownership problem must be resolved through a partition action. Vallejo natives often inherit property, along with their brothers and sisters, from parents and grandparents. The unfortunate reality of such is that these relationships can quickly turn sour. When co-owners cannot agree on the future of their shared property, contacting a Vallejo Partition Lawyer is the next best thing.

There are at least four situations in which speaking with a Vallejo Partition Lawyer should be considered:

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

When these situations become tense, and a co-owner no longer wishes to be forced into a relationship with another by a shared property, a Vallejo Partition Attorney can help. In these times, initiating a partition action is the best way to end all disputes. A partition action does not change the title to the land but merely divides what the parties already own, freeing you from joint owners’ opinions over your share of the property.

Typically, a court orders the shared real estate be sold to the highest bidder, and the profits split between joint owners equal to their interest in the property. Determination of a party’s ownership interests can sometimes be discerned without much trouble. When the interests of each party are not viably apparent, however, a Vallejo Partition Lawyer is invaluable to the process.

The city is well known for being the 142-year home of the first naval shipbuilding and repair facility on the west coast, the Mare Island Naval Shipyard. Founded in 1854, this maritime base defined Vallejo’s economy until the turn of the 21st century.

Vallejo is home to the California Maritime Academy, Touro University California, McCune Rare Book and Art Collection, Solano County Fairgrounds, Mare Island Historic Park, Empress Theater, and Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. The city has also been home to various athletes, including Ted Albrecht, a former professional football player who played for the Chicago Bears, and Bobby Brooks, a former professional baseball player who played as an outfielder for the Oakland Athletics and California Angels.

In recent years, the city has attracted a large community of artists. On the second Friday of every month, Vallejo hosts an artist-run Art Walk featuring vendors, music, and plenty of art in downtown Vallejo. This event has unofficially turned Vallejo into a creative hub for artists around the Bay Area.

The city was named after Marian Guadalupe Vallejo, a famous Californio general and statesman. It was founded in 1851 on General Vallejo’s Rancho Suscol to serve as California’s capital city from 1852 to 1853. The city is recognized as the first permanent home of California’s state government.
