Q: What Are The Difference Typed Of Disputes Regarding Quiet Title. Is Religion/Spirituality/Spiritual But Not Religion
And And Also Can That Work In Adverse /Adverse Possession Regarding The Statute Time And Element
A: I know of no relationship between religion or spirituality and either adverse possession or the concept of quieting title, though you might want to review a full set of actual facts past a lawyer in your jurisdiction. For example, if any churches still keep their doors unlocked at all hours for the faithful, it would be difficult for a chronic occupant to ever prove adverse possession, because the occupancy was never adverse or hostile. The notion that American law would be either harsher or more lenient based on spirituality is generally antithetical to the First Amendment Free Exercise and Establishment Clauses, except that religion-owned land is generally tax-free. So, it might be wise to share actual facts with a licensed lawyer if there is real money involved.
A: Your question can really only be answered after a licensed attorney, where the property is located, evaluates all the facts of your potential case. However a claim to quiet title is special legal proceeding to determine ownership of real property. The goal of this kind of lawsuit would be to stop anyone and everyone else who has a claim to the land. When a plaintiff wins in a quiet title action, no further challenges to the title can be brought.
I don’t believe that religious or spiritual considerations will play a major part, if any.
Adverse title is when one gets valid title to real property by essentially going onto the land and openly exercising ownership without permission for a period of time determined my the jurisdiction.
Again, without the facts it’s tough to see how religion would play a significant part.
