Adverse claim is a mere annotation on the TCT. The adverse claimant is given 30 days to file the claim in court. Failiure however would not mean that the adverse claim can be removed from the title. The property owner has to file a petition in court for 'quieting of title' to remove the annotated adverse claim.
