Title

Request for authority to initiate a quiet title action against the real property located at 407 Vine Avenue, Clearwater, FL. (consent)

 

Body

SUMMARY: 

On April 10, 2018, the City obtained title to real property commonly referred to as 407 Vine Avenue, Clearwater, FL 33755 (Property) through a county deed from Pinellas County (County).  The County had previously obtained title to the Property through an escheatment tax deed on August 23, 2017. 

While the escheatment statute provides that the County obtained the Property free and clear of tax certificates, tax liens, and other liens of record, the City currently does not have clear title to the Property and the Property is not insurable.  A quiet title action is therefore necessary to clear title so the City may orderly transfer the Property.
