Quiet Title Action Lawyer
A Quiet Title Action is a legal proceeding where a Court corrects certain defects in the title to land, which prevents the true owner from the fullest use and enjoyment of the land.
One typical type of title defect in Hawaii is when there is a “break” in the chain of title. A “break” in the title can occur if a landowner passes away but does not designate an heir, leaving uncertainty as to who is the successor to that land. Another example of a “break” occurs if a landowner transfers only a portion of the land, but the Deed causes uncertainty as to what portion was transfer or retained.
A Court can repair these and other “breaks in title” in a quiet title action.
Another type of title defect is when there is a “cloud” on the title. A “cloud” is an outstanding claim or encumbrance land that if valid, would impair the owner’s full use and enjoyment of the land. Typical clouds on title include outstanding mortgages, liens and court judgments recorded against the land. Clouds on title also include defective and/or fraudulent deeds recorded against the land. Finally, the act of strangers occupying and claiming exclusive ownership of the land against the true owner is also considered a cloud on a land’s title. A Court can remove invalid clouds in a quiet title action.
