Partnership in land may be formed as a result of land being handed down by inheritance to several inheritors, or a voluntary action of the parties who procured together the rights to the land. Dissolution of partnership is a basic right of each of the partners, regardless of their part in the land. The legislator stipulated preference to distribution in specie (actual distribution) of the land, when possible, through an agreement or court order, over dissolution by way of sale.
Partnership dissolution agreements and legal proceedings to dissolve partnerships have many implications for the parties to consider. We can help you better understand your legal situation and strive for the best result for you.
You must be aware of the available options in the partnership agreement, including the option to limit the time in which either partner may plead for dissolution of partnership.
