    Colorado Partition Law

    Title 38, Article 28 of Colorado Statutes contains the basic rules for partition lawsuits. Generally, a partition action results in the forced sale of jointly owned real estate. However, if the land is rural or capable of division into equal pieces, the court may divide up the land instead of ordering a sale.

    In Colorado, a partition action can be filed by anyone “having an interest” in the real estate. This does not mean that the real estate is interesting. It means that the person owns at least a fractional share of the real estate. Any co-owner has the right to bring a partition lawsuit. Generally, the attorney fees for the partition lawsuit can be paid from the proceeds of the sale under Section 109.

    For more details on the forced sale and partition process in general, see our article: Forced Sale of Joint Owned Property (Partition Action).

    Spoke with Ryan during a very emotional time over property after a loved one passed and he went out of his way to quickly get back to me and and go above what other lawyers I reached out to were willing to do! I would use this company in the future and recommend them to any of my family and friends!

    Wonderful service! The timing of making a deal can give us anxiety. Luke was so helpful with the purchase of our commercial property. He was very good at responding back and he will let us know when he can get back to us if he is busy with court etc. We are so happy with his service. He was very knowledgeable regarding our purchase agreement and give us a good feedback what need to be done or take out. Above all we were happy with his price, too.
