Uniform Partition of Heirs Property Act. Creates the Uniform Partition of Heirs Property Act, which preserves the right of a cotenant to sell his interest in inherited real estate, while ensuring that the other cotenants will have the necessary due process, including notice, appraisal, and right of first refusal, to prevent a forced sale. If the other cotenants do not exercise their right to purchase property from the seller, the court must order a partition in kind if feasible, and if not, a commercially reasonable sale for fair market value. The provisions of the bill apply to partition actions filed on or after July 1, 2019.
