Quiet Title, what does it mean?

“Quiet Title” is a technical phrase to describe how people can ascertain ownership of real estate.  It is a legal theory used when you want to establish that people claiming an interest adverse to yours in real estate do not actually have any interest.  It is also a description used when there may be problems with how real estate was deeded in the past and a person needs to establish they have good, clear title to a parcel of real estate.  Ultimately, a party is looking for a Judge to review the evidence regarding the title to the property and uses of the property and make a decision as to “who” owns “what” in regard to the disputed real estate.  Boundary line disputes, bad legal descriptions, adverse possession claims are just a few instances where it may be necessary to bring a Quiet Title action.
