Quiet Title Action A lawsuit to establish a
party's title to real property against anyone and everyone,
"quiet" any challenges or claims to the title. Such a suit usually
arises when there is some question
about clear title, there exists some
recorded problem, an error in description which casts doubt on
the amount of property owned, or an easement used for years without a
An action for quiet title requires description of
the property to be "quieted," naming as defendants anyone who
have an interest, and the factual and legal basis for the claim of title.
must be given to all potentially interested parties, by publication. If the court is convinced title is in theplaintiff a quiet title judgment will
be granted which can be recorded and thus provide legal "good title."
Hi, you indicated that you currently have a quitclaim deed. If every titleholder in the subject property has conveyed their interest in the property to you, then you do not need a quiet title action. However, the only way to determine whether everyone's interest has been released by way of a quit claim deed is to perform a title search. If after the title search has be performed, and you discover that there is someone still on title, you can either attempt to have them sign over a quit claim deed to you, or you can pursue the quiet title action. If there are no title issues, then you should be able to obtain title insurance for the amount you paid the grantor after the title insurer has conducted a thorough title search on the previous owners and the property.1 of 1 people found this helpful
Do you know how much a title search would cost in Florida and how much time it will take to be conducted? Thanks.
To search and examine the title would cost approximately $300, without title insurance.
It really depends on the state. My state charges $125 but California is around $500.

I know that in order for me to get title insurance on a parcel, I need to have a warranty deed. I currently have a quitclaim deed and I'm going to do a quiet title action to get a warranty deed. My question is What is the success rate of quiet title actions? I hear that it's not guaranteed to go through and I could possibly end up losing the land.
