Legal Answers
330 Questions Answered
Q. We have a farm with four owners with undivided surfaced interest. What are our options if one wants to sell?
A: 1. Informal Partition by Agreement:

This option involves the owners reaching a mutual agreement on how to divide or sell the property without court intervention. Here are some steps you might take:

a. Negotiation: All owners need to discuss and negotiate the terms of the partition, including how the property will be divided or sold.

b. Drafting an Agreement: Once an agreement is reached, it's essential to have a legally binding document drafted, detailing the terms and conditions of the partition.

c. Legal Review: It's advisable to have the agreement reviewed by individual attorneys to ensure that everyone's rights and interests are adequately protected.

d. Execution: After legal review and any necessary revisions, the agreement can be executed, and the agreed-upon actions can be taken.

Judicial Partition

Generally an owner of an undivided interest in land can file for a judicial partition. The court appoints commissioners who determine if the property can be divided into equal relevant shares in an equitable way. If this is not possible, then it is appraised, each owner has an opportunity to buy out the others at the appraised price (less their proportionate value). But if nobody exercises the option, or if more than one owner exercises the option a deadlock is created. The property may be sold at sheriff's sale with the proceeds divided according to their interests.

Q. On the day the company that bought my home came to take possession of my home my name was still on the deed
A: I'm not licensed in California, so this information may be helpful when you visit with a California licensed attorney.

People often confuse the concept of car titles with property ownership. A car title is typically signed over to the purchaser. The same is not true with real estate. A deed does not necessarily mean that you own a property, such a case when someone with no ownership gives you a deed. Likewise, a person can own real property when there is no deed, such as a probate order awarding an inheritance.

Generally, a probate process involves a sheriff's sale or trustee's sale (depending upon your state). There may be a successful bidder who can become the owner.

Also, county officials are generally prohibited from giving legal advice such as title opinions.

You should visit with a California attorney to see if there is still the ability to redeem the property. If not you might also want to see if there are excess funds (money paid that exceeds the debt) to which you may be entitled.

Q. true that if I pay all the back property taxes on a property that I will own it/ have the deed in my name? Washington
A: In most states merely paying back property taxes does not create an ownership interest. You should visit with a Washington attorney with all of the facts.
