Any attorney you speak with about this issue will be unable to give you a good answer until he/she is able to see the different deeds you speak of and the quiet titles you speak of along with a few more facts.

1 Answer | Asked in Real Estate Law for Oklahoma on

Q: Can a Quiet Title be successfully challenged?

Our property was sold fraudulently. The buyers must have known something about the fraud because shortly after the sales quiet title actions were filed. Can a quiet title ever be successfully overturned?

Doak Willis answered on Aug 1, 2019

If the quiet title action has been completed to Judgment, it would be very difficult to overturn that Judgment. If it has not gone to judgment, you can win some quiet title cases depending of course on the facts of the case.

Q: I listed a house to sell and married prior to closing. Does my wife need to sign any documents ?

Did I need to advise my realtor?

At closing it is likely that she will be required to sign off on the deed even if she is not on the title. This is because should could oppose the sale because of a spousal homestead claim. Let the realtor know, the title company should be able to handle this easily.
