When there is a dispute, or it is unclear, as to who owns a piece of real estate, Georgia law allows a person to seek to “quiet title” to that real estate. Essentially, the court will declare who owns the real estate, and whether any liens, easements, security deeds, etc. are valid. At Fletcher Law Firm, we help people resolve these disputes quickly, efficiently, and at a minimum of expense. Our firm will work hard to protect your rights in your property.
