California Heirs Property Law

California enacted the Uniform Partition of Heirs Property Act in 2021 (Assembly Bill 633), which preserves the rights of the heirs of an intestate landowner by adding a number of due process protections for partition procedures to state probate law that help to ensure all heirs receive a fair share of the proceeds if the property is sold. Inherited farmland is frequently negatively impacted without partition protections in place.

This law is effective on January 1, 2022.
