Ask Your Own Real Estate Law Question
Real Estate Lawyer: Ray, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

To resolve certain disputes which can arise over title to real estate, the New Jersey legislature has provided a process by which a party in possession of the real estate can protect or clear up the title to his property. If another person or entity raises a claim, or disputes the title to the property in some way, then the party in possession of the property may wish to commence a lawsuit to "quiet title" and thus resolve any outstanding issues relating to the title.

While quiet title actions have historical roots, the remedy available today in New Jersey is a statutory one pursuant to N.J.S.A. 2A:62-1 et seq.. It is a remedy which permits a person who is in peaceable possession of lands in New Jersey to settle disputes over the title to his land. A person in "peaceable possession" may, when title to his lands or any part of them is denied or disputed, or when a lien or encumbrance is asserted against his lands, use this process "to settle the title to such lands and to clear up all doubts or disputes" concerning the land. N.J.S.A. 2A:62-1.

Such an action would be commenced in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Chancery Division. In order to commence such an action, the party seeking relief must allege that he is in "peaceable possession" and that no action is pending to enforce or test the validity of the defendant’s claim to title or an encumbrance. After proving this, the burden then falls on the defendant to prove his claims.

You may want to have local lawyer help you draft and file this suit to quiet title.

I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.
