Introduction to Partition Lawsuits for Real Property in Connecticut

Partition lawsuits allow co-owners of real property to legally separate their interests when they cannot come to an agreement. If you are facing a dispute over the division of jointly-owned property, our experienced Connecticut attorneys can help you understand and navigate the complexities of Connecticut's partition law, Connecticut General Statutes § 52-495.

The Basics of Connecticut General Statutes § 52-495

Connecticut General Statutes § 52-495 provides the legal framework for partition actions in Connecticut. Partition actions can be filed when co-owners of real property are unable to agree on the division of the property. Under this statute, the court may order the property to be physically divided or, if that's not possible, sold and the proceeds distributed among the co-owners.

The Partition Lawsuit in Connecticut

The process of filing a partition lawsuit begins with drafting and filing a complaint with the court. The complaint must include a description of the property, the names of all co-owners, and the plaintiff's proposed method of partition.

When deciding partition actions, the court will consider several factors, including the fair market value of the property, the respective ownership interests of each co-owner, the respective contributions of the co-owners to support the property, and the feasibility of a physical division. Our attorneys will help you present a compelling case that considers these factors, ultimately working towards a fair and equitable outcome for all parties involved.
