Partitions in North Carolina

Here is some basic information on partition actions.

What is a partition action? This type of litigation is a special proceeding filed with the Clerk of Court when multiple property owners (more than 1) own a property and disagree how to handle the property.

What type of disagreement? Perhaps one owner wants to sell. In another situation, one owner wants to divide the property and not own it undivided. In another, the parties desire different uses for the property (eg. farming vs. developing).

A partition of property occurs when the property owners cannot agree. Finally, one says "that's enough, I want out" or "I want my 1/2, you can have your 1/2". If the other side won't buy the other out, then one files a partition action with the court. The clerk of court (in North Carolina cases) will determine if the property can be divided equally or needs to be sold.
