Attention To Detail In Securing Clear Titles

Quiet title actions are an attempt to clean up a recorded title to mineral rights, surface rights or both. This gives the mineral or surface owner a clear title to their surface or mineral interests.

Ehrlich • Pledger Law, LLP, can assist with quiet title actions for clients throughout California. With proficiencies in mineral rights issues and real estate, we can guide you through the quiet title action, working diligently to achieve a recordable judgment that will give you clear title to surface and/or mineral rights.

Dedicated To Clearing Titles To Create Marketable Assets

Often, this is the first time many clients have encountered title issues. In many instances, mineral rights owners are relatives who have lost contact through the years, making it difficult to locate these long-lost relatives. In other situations, interest owners are deceased, or there are old liens or leases on the property that cloud the title.

We will help with the quiet title action and publish the intent to clear the title in the local newspaper. If those relatives do not appear within a certain timeframe, we will obtain an order from the judge to quiet their ownership. If the title has old liens or leases attached to it, we also will clear those issues through a quiet title action, thereby creating a marketable title.

Additionally, through the Dormant Mineral Rights Act, surface owners can quiet a title and become the owner of the mineral rights. We can file a notice of intent to preserve minerals if the owners have left their rights dormant for many years.
