Quiet Title Dispute: Legal Considerations

Quiet Titles Law

  • The plaintiff in a quiet title dispute MUST prove that he or she has rightful title to the property and that this title is superior to claims of all others who may hold an interest in the property. If you are the plaintiff, the burden of proof rests with you, and your legal counsel.
  • If you have purchased property as the result of a governmental tax foreclosure, protect your investment by consulting with a lawyer. In some cases, a quiet title action is required in order to obtain an insurable title for the property.
  • Once property ownership has been determined without a doubt, the title must be properly recorded with the court. Your legal representative will ensure that the proper language is included in this recording, providing clarity for the future transfer, sale, conveyance or occupancy of the property.
