The cost of a Partition action will vary greatly based upon the opposition by any other part owner(s). If there is NO opposition the cost could run around $ 2000. to as much as $ 10K, if it is a messy deal. I have never personally seen one this messy, but have been assured by several Attys that I deal with that they have.
These costs are quoted based upon experience in a Judicial and Mortgage state, where the Partition action basically follows the same process of a typical foreclosure lawsuit. Your results in a non-judicial and Trust Deed state may be quite different, as the proceedure may vary drastically.
In the post from Don Dion below, he refers to costs to sub-divide a lot from an existing parcel, which of course is a completely different subject than a “Partition Action”.
Just the way that I view things…
