Join GLAR Real Estate Service Partner - Eli Underwood for this informative session How to Sell Houses When Co-Owners Disagree!

This class will discuss the relatively straightforward partition process, where one party wants to sell and the other does not. This does not relate to lot splits. Instead, partition lawsuits actually have much more relevance to today’s residential and commercial real estate markets, which can help Realtors sell more houses. The target audience is salespeople.

In fact, there are many California homeowners who feel locked into co-ownership with a sibling, an ex-partner, or a co-investor who doesn’t want to sell. Many of these people are being turned away by agents who don’t know how to help them. What’s more, co-ownership arrangements like these are on the rise, as more couples choose to buy homes together without being married. A clear understanding of the partition action process, and the liberation it offers, is essential in today’s real estate market.
