property disputes between the owners of real estate often includes a requirement for the partition. If the parties are family members, friends or business partners for joint ownership of property disputes will be dealt with the causes of partition. Partition lawsuit asks the court to impose allocation or real estate transaction.
Why are you fighting this action?
In most cases, the score is something that the parties agree that the place named in a lawsuit. For example, when the family litigation sisters have inherited a property together and just as clean (50% stake), a sister, for some reason you want to leave the property. Perhaps because of lingering animosity from the family, the sisters will be able to agree on how to divide the property, so you want to hire a lawyer to sue partition.
If a trial takes place score at the end the courts, the process will be something like that. Applicants must request a declaration of ownership and power, or a sale of the property division. If it is possible that the court will divide the property, but in most cases, the sale will be the only option. For example, an industrial building not normally split in two.
How much is this trial?
The court shall appoint an arbitrator to prepare the property for sale. The referee then hire a broker or an appraiser and an accountant to maintain accounting issues. Each of these parts must be paid. The referee, bills that often before, is of interest to charge the case as much as possible. The broker or auctioneer will receive a percentage of the sale, generally in the range of 5-10%. The book also paid on time. In other words, all these consultants are depleted fund assets before sale.
The question then is why would anyone ever through this process? It is more profitable, faster and easier to simply accept the same exact process without a referee, and additional hearings.

2. Accounting: Is there any accounting issues?
Most of the cases on the partition, because someone needs the money or do not want to be the other co-owner of the longest title of what they accuse their brother or sister for stealing. However, a party may have contributed to increased maintenance, or other loan may be extended to the building. These items can be offset by the sale and distribution of this book may be a result. If the parties do not agree on this, so an accountant can be hired to analyze the numbers.
3. Turnover: is co-owner is willing to buy the other co-owner? If yes, the parties may negotiate a price. It is always a difficult debate.
