New Jersey Assembly Bill 5510 (2021)

An Act concerning partition actions involving certain real property and supplementing Chapter 56 of Title 2A of the New Jersey Statutes.

This bill would enact the Uniform Partition of Heirs Property Act in New Jersey, 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.
