What is a Quiet Title Action?

avvo.com | January 12, 2014

By Frank Chen

What is a quiet title action and can it be used on a house being foreclosed on with several title problems?

A quiet title action is used when a person claims legal ownership to real property, or wishes to remove unauthorized or improper liens clouding the title. A "complaint" is the name of the document which initiates a lawsuit. An "action" refers to the case or lawsuit. In California, to assert a cause of action to quiet title, the complaint must be verified and meet the other pleading requirements set forth in California Code of Civil Procedure section 761.020: (1) a legal description of the property and street address; (2) title of plaintiff and basis of title; (3) adverse claims to title of plaintiff; (4) date as of which determination is sought; and (5) a prayer for determination of title of plaintiff against adverse claims.

Generally speaking, a quiet title action probably won't work in the context of a wrongful foreclosure case because the law requires that the borrower attacking a voidable sale must do equity by tendering the amount owing under the loan. The tender rule applies to all causes of action implicitly integrated with the sale. (Arnolds Management Corp. v. Eischen (1984) 158 Cal.App.3d 575, 579.)
