Maine Revised Statutes

§1-604. Expenses of partition

When a partition of real estate is made by order of a judge of probate, the expenses thereof shall be paid by the parties interested in proportion to their interests; but when such expenses accrue prior to the closing order or statement of the personal representative of the deceased owner of such real estate, having in his hands sufficient assets for the purpose, he may pay such expenses and allow the same in his account. In case of neglect or refusal of any person liable to pay such expenses, the judge may issue a warrant of distress against such delinquent for the amount due from him and costs of process.
