Understanding Partition of Property in Pakistan

Partition is the division of co-owned property into distinct portions so that each co-owner may hold their part separately. In Pakistan, this process is governed by the Partition Act of 1893.

Partition suits are common among family members and business partners, often causing lengthy legal battles. The court, in deciding a partition suit, will consider the share of each co-owner, the nature of the property, and the feasibility of division.

The court may decide to physically divide the property if feasible or sell the property and distribute the proceeds if physical partition is not practical. It’s also possible for co-owners to mutually agree on the partition, negating the need for court intervention.

As straightforward as it may sound, partition suits can get complicated due to emotional attachments, disagreements among co-owners, or ambiguity in title deeds. An experienced advocate can significantly simplify this process.
