Civil Causes of Action - Confirm Title Law and Legal Definition

Title is the sum total of legally recognized rights to the possession and ownership of property. In the case of real property, an action to quiet title, sometimes refered to as an action to "confirm title" may be brought to affirm ownership of the property when others claim an interest in such property. This is often seen in relation to back tax liens or liens or easements (rights of way) on the property.
