When a person passes away, their property is typically divided among their next of kin, such as their children. If the next of kin is more than one person, the people inheriting property will need to go through a probate process to figure out how they will share ownership. If they are not able to agree and a dispute arises, the inheritors will need to file a real estate partition action.
If you and your family members cannot agree on what to do with an inherited home, the Law Offices of Charles L. Kurmay can help. Let our Fairfield County real estate partition action lawyers put our skills and experience to use for you.

Understanding the Types of Real Estate Partitions
Essentially, a partition action is an effective way to resolve disputes between the co-owners of inherited properties. A partition action may occur in a number of situations, including if a home or property is left to multiple parties who do not know each other. In other cases, family members may have moved to other parts of the country or world and not be able to take care of the property after losing a loved one.
There are two main types of partitions:
- Partition in kind
- Partition by sale
A partition in kind could be used to divide the property equitably, such as in the case of a 100-acre property. Meanwhile, a partition by sale occurs by selling the property to divide the proceeds to the co-owners.
