Partition Actions in Florida

When joint owners of real estate in Florida disagree as to how their property should be handled, one owner may wish to sell it while the other owner does not.  Florida law provides for a specific mechanism to force the sale of the property – the partition action.  In a partition action, the Court will either force the property to be divided into pieces, awarding each piece to one of the owners, or it will require that the property be sold at auction, dividing up the proceeds among the owners.
