What is an Arkansas Lis Pendens?

A Lis Pendens is notification of a pending suit. This notifies potential buyers that the property is under pending litigation and that they would be subject to the outcome of said litigation if they purchased the property. This in effect puts a cloud on the title. [ It shall be necessary for the plaintiff or any one (1) of the plaintiffs, if there is more than one (1) plaintiff, or his or her attorney or agent to file a notice of the pendency of the suit, for record with the recorder of deeds of the county in which the property to be affected by the constructive notice is situated. 16-59-101]

An Arkansas Lis Pendens must contain:

Title of the Cause of the case

General Object of the case

Full description of the property involved

Names of Parties to the suit

Style of the Court where suit is pending
