Uniform Partition Of Heirs Property Act
By: Barry L. Miller, Esq., of Barry L. Miller, P.A., Offices Orlando
Effective July 1, 2020, this new statute essentially provides a right of first refusal, allowing heirs property cotenants to purchase the property interests of cotenants seeking partition before the property is divided or sold. The law requires a court to determine the fair market value of the property, either through court ordered appraisal or based on the agreement of the parties before the court proceeds to partition.
The partition will be in an open-market sale by a court appointed real estate broker, instead of an auction as the statutes currently require.
