Quiet Title Action

A Quiet Title Action is a lawsuit to have the court declare all liens and encumbrances – especially a Mortgage – to be void and of no legal effect and to wipe out the lien or Mortgage from the county clerk’s records.  The Quiet Title Action clears all “clouds” on title away.  A Quiet Title Action to wipe out a Mortgage cannot properly be commenced while a mortgage foreclosure action is pending.  But once the mortgage foreclosure action is dismissed or discontinued, a Quiet Title Action may be commenced.
