How do you do a Quiet Title in Michigan?? Part 2

By
Real Estate Agent with Re/Max Platinum

To Quiet a Title in Michigan the process itself is not that difficult but you should hire a good attorney to do this for you as it will speed up the process and you will ensure that it is done correctly!

We will outline below the basic steps that need to happen in order to make the Quiet Title happen successfully. This is not exact but at least it is a guideline to follow!!

1) A Lawsuit needs to be filed

2) There needs to be a postal verification of the last known address on record from the deed

3) There needs to be an attempt made to serve the person/people from the deed  that has caused the break in the chain of title 

4) There needs to be a publication placed in the newspaper for 7 days explaining the lawsuit

5) After 7 day publication then there is a mandatory 10 day wait

6) Default is noted if the person that caused the break in the title does not come forward and prove that they have some sort of rights to the deed 

7) Wait 10 days again after the default is noted

8) File a motion with the court

9) Wait for the court to schedule your appearance

10) Go into court to show them documentation and proof

11) Obtain Quiet Title which then makes the "Break in the Chain of Title" repaired and you can now sell the property to someone who needs to obtain a mortgage!

 I hope this helps you answer some questions and make your Real Estate Learning Curve a little less troublesome!!

Good info.  Do I need to get a quiet deed if I have a deed, but not an assignment of purchasers interest in land contract (paid off years ago by purchaser)

Oh boy that is a great question... I would contact a title company to ask that question. I have not run into that problem!!

Thanks for this post.  We are starting to run into tax sales and generations of Quit Claim Deeds on a parcel.  Soon Title companies will not insure a property with a Quit Claim Deed unless it is a direct relation.
