The judgement of sale must be reviewed. A partition is an asking the judge to order a sale of real property because one or more of the co owners no longer want to be a co owner of the property for any reason. Often times these cases are resolved before a partition sale and the of the parties the other out or it is listed for sale. If these do not occur the judge has no choice but to order a sale. You should seek the assistance of a competent attorney in this matters. You can select either the contact tab or find an attorney. Good luck.
You need to have a real estate attorney do as thorough a due diligence search as time permits on the property and the owners, and any other potential claimants. In particular, you need to look for things like judgments and tax liens (NYS calls them tax warrants) that may have been filed against the individual owners - these will not show up if you just do a title search on the property itself - as well as trying to determine if there are any potential mechanics' liens that might be filed against the property.
This is not for the faint of heart and can be harder than a foreclosure because the sale doesn't foreclose on junior interests the way that a foreclosure on a senior mortgage does.
