Civil Suits For Partition
Partition means division of property between two or more co-owners. Partition of property in India takes place either through a partition deed or family settlement agreement. A co-owner can also file a suit for partition in court.
There are several modes of dividing a jointly-owned property between the co-owners, depending upon the fact whether the property is:
- Divided with mutual consent of all the co-owners.
- Divided on dispute/demand by one or more co-owners.
