Section: 3B:23-8: Partition for purpose of distribution
When two or more heirs or devisees are entitled to distribution of undivided interests in any real or personal property of the estate, the personal representative or one or more of the heirs or devisees may institute an action, prior to the formal or informal closing of the estate, for partition. After notice to the interested heirs or devisees, the court shall partition the property in the same manner as provided by law for civil actions of partition. The court may direct the personal representative to sell any property which cannot be partitioned without prejudice to the owners and which cannot conveniently be allotted to any one party.
