query: does a quiet title always give a clear title

No. The words "quiet title" refer to a legal procedure for removing certain rights or claims that might threaten the title to real estate. The court action is specific. A successful quiet title action will only clear that specific item. There may be other clouds on title unrelated to that which was the concern of the action to quiet title.

Always have a FULL title examination performed by a competent title insurer. Always buy an owner policy in case someone makes a mistake.

This is the only thorough way to protect the title of you real estate.
