Quiet title example foreclosure

A quiet title action is a lawsuit that is filed to seek ownership of real property. Reals professionals need a clear understanding of this process to help them establish true ownership of properties. Most importantly, these legal processes ask the court to determine if the bank has a practical action to foreclose, and if the borrower can have the mortgage detached as a lien from the title of the home.

In the mortgage foreclosure process, the homeowners can commence a quiet title action by challenging the statute of limitations. This is done by using the statute of limitations as the legal base in which one party has to start a lawsuit.

Generally, the petition to the quiet title should be verified and should contain:

  • A description of the home that is the subject of the action
  • The method of vesting of title in the complainant
  • The adverse claims to accuser’s title
  • The date in which the determination is sought.

Homeowners can use quiet title action if the lender has not won the foreclosure. A quite foreclosure takes between 8 to 10 weeks. However, the process may be longer depending on the issues surrounding it, such as court orders.
