Reliable Counsel from a Houston Real Estate Lawyer
A land partition is the legal method to divide property which is jointly owned by more than one person. Certain situations develop which may call for the division of land, and it is often easiest to go through the process of land partition rather than trying to informally decide how to use the land.

Through land partition, parcels of land which are co-owned are divided into distinct portions. The end result is to transition property from co-ownership to sole ownership without completely excluding a party. This process can even be used to fairly divide large pieces of communal property that are up for dispute in a divorce.
There are four common forms of land partitions:
- Voluntary partitions: Co-owners divide the property among themselves by exchanging deeds with the help of a property law attorney
- Judicial partitions: One owner files a lawsuit against the other who does not agree with the guidelines of the partition. A judge will have to decide how to fairly divide the land.
- Partition in kind: Involve a piece of property that is easily divided, either through agreements or the physical lay of the land
- Partition by sale: Selling the land as a whole and dividing the proceed among the owners
