Overview

Quiet title actions are a commonly utilized form of litigation in the real property law realm.  Whether seeking to satisfy an ancient mortgage, to correct a defective deed or mortgage, or to extinguish or establish an interest in real estate, quiet title actions are the primary method by which practitioners seek to accomplish these objectives.  

In this three-hour course, we will discuss the circumstances under which quiet title actions are properly employed, the rules and statutes governing the prosecution of quiet title actions, as well as the pitfalls that practitioners must be aware of in pursuing a quiet title action.

 

All attendees will receive the course book as a digital download. Course materials are not available for separate purchase.
