Real Property: Quiet Title-Slander of Title-Statute of Limitations

Where a mortgage company challenged a judgment quieting title to a homeowner, arguing that her quiet title and slander of title claims were barred by the applicable statutes of limitation, the resolution of the timely declaratory-relief claims controlled the resolution of the quiet title action, and the action for slander of title alleged a continuing wrong, so the homeowner could recover damages occurring during the five years before her lawsuit, and substantial evidence supported the claim, so the judgment is affirmed and remanded for a determination of the homeowner’s reasonable attorney’s fees on appeal.

Judgment is affirmed; remanded.
