Lis Pendens is Latin, meaning "Suit Pending" In Arizona a Lis Pendens is filed to notify the world that a case/action is pending on a parcel of property. The suit must involve title to the real property. So, if a mechanics lien is filed, should I file a Lis Pendens? No, because it doesn't affect title to real property, After the mechanics lien is adjudicated and a Foreclosure suit begins, then a Lis Pendens should be filed. Sometimes in a divorce, when one spouse solely owns the property. A Lis Pendens is filed to prevent the sale of the house, until the divorce is settled. A Lis Pendens is a very powerful tool, it basically puts a cloud on the title, which makes it very difficult to sell the property, and there are consequences if filed falsely. Without a lawsuit affecting title to real property, you should not file a Lis Pendens.

Formatted to meet Arizona recording requirements with ample space for multiple plaintiffs (person(s) who brings a case against another in a court of law) and defendants.

Deeds.com made the recording of our Deed in a county where we do not reside, VERY easy! Customer service was great with all my questions answered immediately via my account portal. Very user friendly service!

I wish the available documents were a little less pricey, but all in all, to get the job done right, I'll probably utilize the document downloads in the future.

Question: How long do the forms stay available on my account?

Thanks for the feedback Felicia. Our goal is to keep the documents available in your account indefinitely. It's a good idea to download the documents and store them yourself just in case.

The process for obtaining document itself was easy, and the included guide and example are great! rnI do have an issue with the format itself, though. The form has pre-defined text boxes, which cannot be altered without partially rebuilding the entire document. For the 'property description' field on the Mineral Deed form, the text box is not large enough for the rather lengthy legal description entered on my original plat.rnFortunately, I have a copy of Adobe Pro, so I have been able to re-build the doc to accommodate this short-coming.

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on our legal form. We're pleased to hear that you found the process for obtaining the document and the included guide beneficial.

We understand and appreciate your concern regarding the formatting and size limitations of certain fields, especially the 'property description' field. Our forms are designed to adhere to specific formatting requirements that are often mandated for legal compliance. Making direct alterations to the document can result in them becoming non-conforming, which is why we advise customers to use an exhibit page when their legal description is extensive or does not fit.

This was our first time using Deeds.Com. We were tremendously impressed. The website works well, but the customer service really makes this organization special. The prompt, professional and knowledgeable responses to inquiries and recording issues was refreshing.

Website is easy to use. I ordered the form, filled it out and uploaded it for recording. My only critique is that you can't preview the form before ordering and paying for it. I ordered a Deed of Full Reconveyance form only to find out I needed the Substitution of Trustee and Deedn of Reconveyance form instead. So I wasted $22 on the wrong form.

Reply from Staff

Thank you for your feedback. Order and payment for the incorrect order has been canceled. Have a wonderful day.
