Article 254. The division of jointly owned property and the separation of a share from it.

1. The division of common property between participants of joint ownership, as well as the separation of the share of one of them can be carried out after a preliminary determination of the share of each of the participants in the right to common property. 2. When dividing common property and allocating a share from it, unless otherwise provided by law or by agreement of the participants, their shares shall be recognized as equal. 3. The grounds and procedure for dividing common property and separating out a share from it are determined by the rules of Article 252 of this Code insofar as nothing otherwise is established for certain types of joint ownership by this Code and other laws and does not follow from the essence of the relations of the participants in joint ownership.
