In California, most complaints do not require a verified complaint (a complaint signed by the party under penalty of perjury). Some claims, however, like a quiet title claim does require that the complaint be verified. This is easy enough to accomplish through a simple verification. But, parties should obviously make sure the allegations in the complaint are truthful because they are being made under penalty of perjury.
In response to a verified quiet title complaint, the defendant must provide a verified answer. This is useful because right from the outset the plaintiff will get an understand of which specific allegations the defendant admits or denies. This is useful for framing the issues for trial and determining the factual and legal disputes that the case will necessarily involve.
