Order Of Publication
The object of this proceeding is to quiet the title to a parcel of real property being known as
3929 Duvall Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21216
The property has a legal description as follows:
BEGINNING FOR THE SAME on the southeast side of Duvall Avenue as laid out 50 feet wide, at the distance of 154 feet measured northeasterly along the southeast side of Duvall Avenue from the northeast side of Lyndhurst Avenue as laid out 50 feet wide and running thence and binding on the southeast side of Duvall Avenue and referring the courses of this description to the True Meridian as established by the Baltimore City Topographical Survey Commission North 61 degrees 55 minutes 30 seconds East 36.50 feet to a point in line with the center line of a partition wall there erected, thence to and through the center of said partition wall South 28 degrees 04 minutes 30 seconds East 135 feet, thence South 61 degrees 53 minutes 30 seconds West 36.50 feet and thence North 28 degrees 04 minutes 30 seconds West 135 feet to the place of beginning. The improvements thereon being known as Number 3929 Duvall Avenue.
The Complaint states, among other things, that the defendants, Louis S. Carter and Doris L. Carter, executed a home equity conversion Deed of Trust securing a loan in the original amount of $220,500.00 against the subject property; plaintiff owns a beneficial interest in said Deed of Trust The subject property was conveyed to the defendants, Louis S. Carter and Doris L. Carter, by virtue of a Deed dated April 14, 1977, from Berkley L Pride, purportedly surviving tenant by the entireties, and recorded among the Land Records of Baltimore City in Liber 3465, folio 101. Said Deed did not include the date of death of Bessie M. Pride, Berkley L. Pride's wife; that date was left blank in the "Being" clause. Therefore, there is a cloud on defendants' title if Bessie M. Pride survived Berkley L. Pride. The purpose of this case is to quiet title to the subject property in the defendants and to have the aforesaid Deed of Trust, in which plaintiff holds the beneficial interest, declared a first-priority lien on the subject property.
It is thereupon this 13th day of November, 2020, by the Circuit Court for Baltimore City.
ORDERED, that notice be given by the insertion of a copy of this Order Of Publication in some newspaper having a general circulation in Baltimore City once a week for three (3) successive weeks on or before the 13th day of December, 2020, warning all persons or entities having or claiming to have an interest in said property to appear in this Court by sending a document, referencing the above caption and case number, on or before the 12th day of January, 2021 and/or answer the Complaint, or thereafter, failure to answer the Complaint within the time allowed will result in the entry of a final Judgment quieting the title to the property and vesting title in the defendants, subject to a first priority Deed of Trust, as aforesaid; and it is further
