When property owners dispute the future use of a property, often times the disagreement is resolved by either dividing up the land between the owners or selling the land and dividing the proceeds among the property owners. This court process is called a “Petition for Partition”. We regularly represent the owner bringing the action (the “Petitioner”) or one of the other owners (the “Respondent”). Petitions to Partition can be a challenging issue to resolve, especially with co-owners who refuse to cooperate. Our years of experience allows us to effectively represent our clients in these types of cases.
When selling real estate, the condition of the title can be adversely affected by errors in the chain of title. These title issues are not only a headache but can also delay the real estate closing until the issue is resolved. Title issues occur for numerous reasons, including incorrect information on a deed, someone in the chain of title still retains an ownership interest, a lien that was not released, or an encroachment. Our firm can assist with resolving these title issues through manual title curative or court action.
Mobile Homes are often registered with the DMV and treated as personal property similar to cars. This occurs for both singlewide and doublewide mobile homes.
