On September 12, 2018, Thomas Weiss & Associates, P.C. was successful in a quiet title action in Queens County resulting in the complete removal of $608,000 mortgage from the records of the County Clerk’s office.

A quiet title is a specialized action brought to clear a party’s title to real property. The purpose of a quiet title action is to eliminate all “clouds” on title. A cloud on title is any claim or judgement that may invalidate or create an encumbrance to the title to real property.

About the Case

Our team, having carefully reviewed the procedural and mortgage history in a prior foreclosure action, brought a suit to quiet title claims by the mortgage of the property. We were able to successfully advance two legal theories as to why our client was entitled to completely remove $608,000 mortgage from her property records. The court granted judgment in our favor, which resulted in quiet title against the mortgagee. The judgment was recorded on the property records and all traces of the mortgage have been removed. We are very proud of our success. Because of our team’s dedication, our clients are able to enjoy their property free and clear of any mortgage or other encumbrance.
