In the realm of relationships, it is inevitable that a partition may be the answer when a break up occurs between individuals that purchased real estate together. Partition actions can also occur during the dissolution of a marriage or during a breakup of two unmarried individuals that purchased real estate or a home together or even between business associates or friends that purchased real estate together without an agreement. Partition of land divides real property among two or more joint tenants or tenants in common. See 735 ILCS 5/17-101; Peck v. Peck, 157 N.E.2d 249, 285 (1959). The purpose of a partition is to enable various owners to sever their interests and possess, enjoy, and improve the new separate portion. Id. Illinois courts favor division of land rather than a division of proceeds from the land’s sale. Peck, 157 N.E.2d at 285-86.

Land partitions are accomplished two ways:

1) the property is divided among the current owners, or
2) the entire property is sold and the proceeds divided equitably among the previous owners.
