Partition law. What’s that?!
When 2 or more people own real estate together and 1 wants to sell but the other doesn’t a partition lawsuit is the answer. A partition lawsuit also applies if the co-owners cannot agree on a fair ownership percentage. The South Carolina court system will make these decisions in a court order to determine the rights of the parties, whether to have a public or private sale and sort through the disputes concerning land.
We have a Partition statute that has changed in the past few years. It’s a complex area of real estate law to apply a process for handling land issues that has existed for hundreds of years. People have always had land disputes. It’s not technology. It’s about fairness, known as equity. Sometimes people just can’t work out their legal problems involving land. We can help you with that.
We have recently concluded a successful partition case involving a house in Mt. Pleasant. The case went to trial. The judge ordered the property to be sold. While our client wanted to resolve the issues without a lawsuit or a trial, it was the only way to go. We are pleased to offer these services to our clients drawing upon experience in the court system, real estate, family law and probate law. Each case is different and the facts of each situation determine the outcome.
What Our Clients are Saying
Having someone go the extra mile made me feel much better about a foreclosure matter against a series of large banks I was handling [for a Kiawah borrower] for more than 5 years. Ms. Gaddy’s high standards and attention to detail made the process and result something I can look back on happy that I was involved. I felt lucky to find Susan Gaddy. She wanted to know more than all the experts involved and the Judge’s order indicates that she did. It was a tremendous relief. [read more]
Our experience with Susan Gaddy has been excellent. Our family was on the verge of getting evicted by the HOA where the house title was taken from underneath me and put under the HOA. [read more]
