The Uniform Partition of Heirs Property Act addresses the issue of tenancy-in-common land ownership, a type of joint ownership without rights of survivorship. When there is no right of survivorship, the death of a tenant-in-common can trigger an action to partition the land to satisfy the deceased tenant’s heirs. In a partition, the land is sold to satisfy tenant-in-common interests, often in a sale that does not meet market value. The Act establishes remedies for use in those partition actions involving heirs property. The remedies are designed to help those who own heirs property to maintain ownership of their property when possible or to insure at the very least that any court-ordered sale of the property is conducted under commercially reasonable circumstances that will protect the owners from losing substantial wealth upon the sale of their property.
