Occasionally there are matters that create what are called “clouds” against an owner’s title to a property. It makes no difference if the property is vacant land, residential or commercial. A “cloud” on title might result from a wrongfully recorded lien of some type. It could result from a mortgage that has been repaid, but never properly released.
No matter what created the “cloud” against the title, if you are unable to obtain a voluntary release of such item, the quiet title lawsuit may solve your problem. Essentially, suit is filed against the claimant involved. If they are unable to justify the legitimacy of their claim, you can obtain a court order permanently clearing the cloud from your property.
This matter most often arises when you are trying to sell your property and a cloud prevents you from obtaining a clean title policy for your buyer. We can expeditiously resolve these issues for you.
