The trial court granted summary judgment to HCW Development Company and against Douglas Coverdell and Coverdell Enterprises Inc. on Coverdell’s claim for adverse possession of 27 acres of property. On appeal, CEI argued that the trial court erred in granting summary judgment because it owns a portion of property that Coverdell conveyed to it by quitclaim deed.
Where a quitclaim deed could convey only that interest possessed by the grantor, the trial court did not err in entering adverse summary judgment against a party because it had no property interest from a quitclaim deed issued by a party who lost his adverse-possession claim.
Judgment is affirmed.
