What is a Quiet Title Action?

msglaw.com | October 13, 2014

When property titles are exchanged, legal ownership of the property can become unclear. Whether due to poor recordkeeping, a complicated foreclosure or fraud, other parties may claim ownership of a property you have purchased. Liens and other matters can also create dispute over the legal ownership of the title. Without a clear title to the property, you may find yourself in a legal battle over ownership. You may also face complications trying to sell the property later on as a potential buyer will have difficulty getting the title insurance required for a loan if there is a dispute over the property title.

This is when a quiet title action is necessary. A quiet title action is a lawsuit meant to clear the title of a real property by legally declaring a sole owner, and eliminating outside claims for the property. When a quiet title action is filed, all parties with a claim or potential claim for the property are notified and have a chance to argue their case for the property. Ideally, when a quiet title action is filed, a judge will issue an order annulling the conflicting claims to the title and declare you the only rightful owner of the property title.

How a Real Estate Lawyer Can Help

A successful quiet title action will bar others from filing a claim against your title in the future. However, if any rightful parties are left out of the lawsuit, they may later pursue a claim for the title. A real estate lawyer at Marshall Socarras Grant, P.L. can thoroughly investigate the property’s title history to ensure all interested parties are included in a well-prepared quiet title action. We can also help you deal with any other matters hindering a clear title.

Note: there are a few exceptions to quiet title actions. For example, a governmental lien against the title may not be resolved with a quiet title action. An attorney can review your specific case and advise you on what to expect and how best to proceed with clearing your title.
