Rule 1557. Order Directing Partition. Post-Trial Relief.
If the court determines that there shall be partition because of a default or admission or after a hearing or trial, the court shall enter an order directing partition which shall set forth the names of all the co-tenants and the nature and extent of their interests in the property. No exceptions may be filed to an order directing partition.
Pennsylvania Rule of Appellate Procedure 311(a)(7) provides that an appeal may be taken as of right from an order directing partition.
However, a motion for post-trial relief must be filed following trial to an order which does not direct partition or which disposes of a claim other than a claim for partition.
