Statute of Limitations for Quiet Title Claims

A quiet title claim is a request to the Court to determine all interests in a parcel of real estate. It is often used to clear title and ownership disputes. Though it is not frequently an issue, there is a limitations period to bring such a claim.

Specifically, there is a ten (10) year statute of limitations contained in Section 516.010, RSMo to bring a quiet title action. Basye v. Fayette R-III Sch. Dist. Bd. of Educ., 150 S.W.3d 111, 115 (Mo. Ct. App. 2004). Therefore, for a quiet title action to be timely, it must be filed within ten (10) years of the date the plaintiff, or someone under whom he or she claims, had possession of, or record title to, the disputed property.
