Oklahoma Title Attorney | Quiet Title Actions

Are you facing a title issue?

Are title problems hampering a sale, purchase, lease, or investment? 

We focus heavily on curative work and quiet title actions (a curative lawsuit designed to fix title problems). We provide:

  • Curative title work
  • Quiet title actions
  • Title opinions
  • Related title services

If possible, we fix title problems without resorting to legal action. Sometimes we can obtain a quitclaim deed or work with a title insurance company to fix title problems. This is the cheapest and fastest way to resolve a title problem, so we always start here.

However, sometimes title problems cannot be fixed absent a quiet title lawsuit. Here are a few reasons why you might need a quiet title action:

  • Tax Sale Quiet Title. If you purchased property from an Oklahoma tax sale, your property is likely unmarketable. After a tax sale, title insurance companies will not insure a property until a quiet title action has been completed. If the property is not insurable, then it's not marketable either. This will decrease the market value of your property. A quiet title action can restore marketable title.
  • Ownership Disputes. Sometimes, two or more parties make claim to the same piece of property. In this situation, a quiet title action can resolve the ownership dispute and clarify who holds title.
  • Title Defects. Sometimes, there is not any real dispute over ownership, but there is a technical defect in the title records. Someone forgot to do a probate. Someone forgot to sign a deed. A partial interest is owned by a dead relative. There are many possible causes for title defects, but they can generally be corrected through a quiet title action.
