Q: Where can I get a quiet title
A: Quiet title can only be given by the Courts. To quiet title in a property you'd need to first do a complete title search, then file a lawsuit. Such kinds of lawsuit may require a full trial with experts, depending on the circumstances and whether or not other interested parties contest the suit. Suit is filed in the circuit court where the real property is located.
You are strongly encouraged to seek legal advice and/or get legal representation before filing any lawsuit.
A: Quiet title is the name if a cause of action to "quiet" claims that someone else enjoys title. It is an archaic use of the word "quiet." You get it by filing a lawsuit when your title appears to be encumbered. This is not at all similar, except in the vocabulary, to obtaining quiet enjoyment of your tenancy. Again, it is an archaic use of the word "quiet," and it means that your landlord or grantor cannot interfere with your enjoyment of your tenancy.
A: You obtain the relief you want by negotiation with others, resulting in a title document that gets recorded in the land records, or you go to court and obtain a judgment that can also be recorded in the land records. The term "quiet title" includes many things, much as the word "car" describes many different brands and models. The question you should ask your advisor is how to accomplish a specific thing, like proving ownership, or eliminating an easement, or fixing a boundary, or removing an improper lien.
