Business / Real Estate / Partition: Co-tenants who wish to terminate their co-ownership may file an action in court to partition the property. Partition is a legal way to dissolve the relationship when the parties do not voluntarily agree to its termination. If the court determines that the land cannot be divided physically into separate parcels without destroying its value, the court will order the real estate to be sold. The proceeds of the sale will then be divided among the co-owners according to their fractional interests.
