A Word About
Quiet Title Actions in Michigan
Soble Discusses The Race Notice Statutes Used to Protect A Property Owner’s Legal Interests.
An action to quiet title is a court procedure required to obtain an order from the court confirming that a party has a right to their real estate, free and clear from all other challenges or claims to title. Essentially the legal action ‘quiet’s” property title disputes.
Quiet title actions are very common after a Michigan property tax sale or auction. They’re used to negate any procedural issues about the tax sale, ensuring that the county clerk were done in accordance with Michigan statutes. When property is sold at a tax deed sale, the effect is to eliminate any claim that the prior owner or mortgage holder or lien holder may have to the title. When a successful bidder at a tax deed sale obtains the deed to the property, it should be free and clear of any other liens or encumbrances, except for certain excluded liens for municipalities, etc. Unfortunately, the buyer of the tax deed property does not have “marketable title” unless a quiet title action is performed.
Why is a Quiet Title action important?
The buyer of a tax deed property cannot obtain title insurance bought at a tax deed sale until a complaint to quiet title action is filed and an court order is issued. Without title insurance, it is difficult to sell or finance the tax deed property. In a standard Michigan real estate transaction, the buyer will insist upon title insurance in order to insure the title to the property for the amount of the purchase price. Likewise, if a successful bidder of a tax deed property wants to refinance the property, a lender institution will require title insurance to insure title for the mortgage.
