: Any idea as to what a "quiet land title" might be?

: Thanks in advance for any information.

A guess. A 'land title' is an expression of ownership of a piece of land - I hold the 'title deeds' to my house. Some people might wish their ownership to be kept secret, thus their ownership is described as 'quiet', a bit like a 'sleeping partner' in a firm.
