    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).

    Luke Luker gave me outstanding service in helping me transfer an inherited oil royalty account to a non-profit organization. He was supportive and very responsive in guiding me through the complicated process, and everything worked out fine, which was a relief since I do not reside in OK so everything had to be done by phone or electronically. I could not have done this without Luke and would highly recommend him for any legal needs regarding property or real estate.Sherrie Vavrichek
