Quiet Title Actions are brought when title to real estate is ambiguous. The boundaries are not clear, sellers of a house that has been passed down within a family for generations may not have a deed---no one bothered to change the records as the property passed hands; fraudulent conveyance of a deed by forged deed or coercion are also examples of how quiet title actions come about. The procedures for handling these actions vary considerably from county to county. Philadelphia has a very specific procedure that is not known to many attorneys until and unless they need to handle a matter involving quiet title. Explore how to handle a quiet title action and gain practical advice for handling these matters expeditiously.
