In both Pennsylvania and New Jersey, civil court actions called “partition actions” can be used to divide real estate owned by unmarried co-owners when the co-owners cannot agree about who will be allowed to keep the real estate, when the real estate is to be sold, and/or how proceeds from the sale of the real estate will be divided.
The attorneys of Jerner & Palmer, P.C. have extensive experience representing clients in Pennsylvania and New Jersey who need to divide property co-owned with others. We help clients determine what they are entitled to and seek, where possible, to negotiate amicable agreements with co-owners. In cases where negotiations fail and litigation is necessary, our experienced attorneys represent clients through all phases of partition actions in court.
