Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help.You can file this yourself and save legal fees.
Here is the form petition you add in your facts here.
In California here the quiet title action is used to establish title against adverse claims to real property or any interest in the property. [Code Civ. Proc. §760.020] In an action or proceeding in which establishing or quieting title to property is in issue, the court may, in its discretion and on the motion of any party, require that the issue be resolved pursuant to the Code Civ. Proc. provisions relating to quiet title actions. [Code Civ. Proc. §760.030]
You file yours in Superior Court in the county where property is located.
The filing feecost is going to be $435. You'll need to prepare a complaint and file it in Superior Court. If you need to pay a process server to personally serve any defendants, add around $80 per defendant for that cost.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again and good luck with your suit.
I also wish you a happy new year.
Legal fees here if you used a lawyer might run $3k-$5k here so trying yourself might be the cheapest way to go.
