Strong Advocates For Real Estate Co-Owners Facing Disputes

There are many reasons to co-own a piece of real estate. Perhaps by working with other investors, you were able to take advantage of an opportunity with a commercial property that would otherwise have been unavailable to you. Perhaps, you and your siblings inherited a piece of property from a relative who chose not to split the property.

While there are benefits to co-owning real estate, there is always a substantial potential for disputes to arise regarding the property. Co-owners may have a common vision for the property at the outset only to find themselves at loggerheads down the road.

How Partition Can Help Solve Co-Owner Disputes

When agreement can no longer be reached about how to use or dispose of the property, it may be best to ask the court to partition it. The court can consider a variety of factors and create an orderly plan for the disposition of the property. That may be a sale with a division of the proceeds or a buyout.

Our firm can present a detailed case to the court that supports a resolution that benefits you, including proper valuation and accounting of contributions. We will also remain with you through any post-sale hearings the court orders to ensure proper accounting.
