There are many reasons why one may need to bring an action to quiet title on real property.
If you have purchased property at a tax lien auction, filing a quiet title action is necessary in order to be able to convey marketable title. Through this action, any clouds on the title may be removed, and any prior claims may be extinguished, leaving the owner with clear and marketable title.
You may have a different situation, such as a conflict in boundary descriptions in diverse recorded conveyances due to a clerical error or there may be improper liens on the property. In some cases, simply refinancing your home may create clouds on title in the event that the interests of the parties were not properly recorded or in the event that proper satisfactions of prior liens have not been properly recorded.
If you are considering whether or not to purchase a property that has been foreclosed on, or are considering buying a property at a foreclosure auction, there are issues related to title that you might want to discuss with an attorney.
If you have questions about Quiet Title actions, please call my office and I am happy to discuss your case with you.
In 2014, Attorney Alexander Scott Dennison filed a lawsuit in Sarasota County Florida to quiet title to property and argued that both the Statute of Limitations and the Statute of Repose have run. For more information about this case, which as of January 26, 2015 is still pending before the 2nd DCA, please visit this link to Howell vs Suntrust, et al.

Are you facing Foreclosure? Defend your home!
No matter what stage of foreclosure you are in, I can likely help.
Many homeowners facing foreclosure have been inundated with mail from people offering help. You may be facing a law suit because you have not been able to keep up with mortgage payments, or perhaps you have fallen behind on your association dues. Regardless, there are plenty of people out there trying to get your attention, offering their solution. The noise can be deafening and it can be difficult to decide what the right direction for you may be in your circumstances. If you take away one thing from your visit to this website it is this – Defend your home!
Defending your foreclosure case is a sound business decision in many if not most situations.
Your home and your personal finances are important. By defending your foreclosure case you may be able to avoid a judgment of foreclosure and a potential deficiency judgment. Battles are being waged inside our Circuit Courts as well as the Federal Bankruptcy Courts. Many Americans fail to understand that there is more at stake than a party’s inability to pay. This fight is about more than that. By defending your foreclosure case, you are defending the Rule of Law.
Some would have you believe 1) you agree to pay, 2) you haven’t paid as agreed, 3) so the bank can throw you out on the street. A breached agreement to pay does not abrogate hundreds of years of law. The courts are obligated to enforce the law even when it’s the big banks that are suing. Without skilled attorneys in these cases, the counter-weight on the scales of justice, people’s rights are being trampled. Unfortunately, every case that gets slammed through our court system unopposed moves us ALL further away from the Rule of Law.
If you have been served with a Summons and Complaint you are involved in a lawsuit and need to talk to an attorney.
