From time to time, various disputes arise regarding the ownership of, or title to, real property. The most common remedy in these situations is for the aggrieved party to file a quiet title action in the Superior Court where the property is located. The purpose of a quiet title action is to establish title against adverse claims to real property or any interest in the property. In order to prevent the sale or encumbrance of real property during the pendency of the action, the party filing the lawsuit may record a Lis Pendens (lien) against the property. The owner may ask the court to expunge (remove) the Lis Pendens. When necessary, we file quiet title actions on behalf of clients or defend clients in these actions.
