Erica gave some examples of partition suits she had argued. When multiple people inherit property and can’t agree on how to use it, the property is usually sold and the proceedings divided. The process can be ugly and expensive and drag on for years. It is handled in the Chancery division where a judge determines the outcome more on his opinion and the law.
In one of the examples, your client had to continue making mortgage payments when the other party stopped so the clients wanted to be reimbursed for that plus attorney fees.
Another case involved a gift of $50,000 made toward the mortgage in which the spouse of the giver wanted returned after the sale of the property.
Call Erica for all cases in which you need a good real estate lawyer but especially in sticky cases.
