Title claim litigation arises upon title disputes. In property law, a title is a document incorporating a bundle of rights in a property in which a party may own either a legal or equitable interest. Title disputes are common whenever someone else claims to have legal ownership rights to your property or real estate.
Title disputes occur whenever there is disagreement over property ownership. Therefore, title claims litigation in Georgia requires a well-versed real estate attorney. For property title disputes, consider hiring an experienced real estate dispute attorney, who is well-versed in land title issues.
Getting a quiet title or filing a similar lawsuit in a court of equity is the only way to resolve title litigation claims and issues. Title litigation lawyers can help you pursue quiet title actions to establish the property’s actual legal ownership.
Common Causes of Title Litigation
Title litigation arises as a result of the following:
Actual ownership dispute: Disputes over property ownership may occur when two different parties are claiming ownership of the same property. Quiet title actions can resolve such disputes.
Technical title defect: In this case, there is no attempt to question the owner’s ownership. However, conveyance issues and title records need to be corrected, making the property difficult to sell. A quiet title can correct such title irregularities.
Fraudulent deeds: A fraudulent deed, mortgage, or other lien is recorded against a property without the owner’s knowledge or approval. Often, buyers don’t realize the seller has no right to transfer the title to them when they sign the deed. Obtaining a quitclaim deed is the key to resolving a fraudulent transfer.
What Is a Quiet Title Claim?
In a quiet title action or action of quiet title, a circuit court action is filed to establish or settle the title to a property.
In cases where there is a disagreement over the title, quiet title actions are filed to remove or “quiet” a claim or objection. The result is a clear title.
