Massachusetts Partition Actions: Division of Sale Proceeds

Massachusetts partition actions do not always end with the court-ordered sale of the real estate in question.  After a property being partitioned is sold, the proceeds of the sale must be divided between the co-owners.  The law presumes that the proceeds should be divided in accordance with each owner's respective ownership interest.  For example, if there are two owners who each own 50% of the property, the law presumes that the owners should each receive 50% of the sale proceeds.
