In California, the document notifying a property owner and the public about a pending lawsuit regarding that property, is called a Notice of Pending Action. The statutes primarily governing the recording of a notice of pendency of action are found at Code Civil Procedure, sections 405--405.61.

What happens, though, when the case is resolved? At that point, the plaintiff (individual who filed the suit) files a release. This action serves as notice of the resolution and clears the title. The Release of Notice of Pending Action in California is governed by the provisions of Code of Civ. Proc. section 405.50.

The release form identifies the parties and the property. It includes references to the pending lawsuit and the relevant dates. Before recording, the release form must be signed, in the presence of a notary public or other authorized official, by the party that recorded the original notice of pending action, or their successor in interest. Submit the release to the office of the recorder for the county in which the original lis pendens was recorded.

Lawsuits can be complicated, and even small errors can affect the outcome of a case. Please contact an attorney with questions about using the Release of Notice of Pending Action, or for any other issues related to real property in California.

The service provided by the staff at Deeds.com is consistently excellent with prompt replies and smooth recording transactions. I am grateful to have their service available as driving to downtown Phoenix to record documents is always a daunting prospect. Their assistance in recording our firm's documents has been 100% accurate and a pleasure.

Quick and easy! I had previously prepared a Lady Bird deed, submitted it through Deeds.com and it was accepted/recorded by my county in just a few hours. The Deed.com $21 fee was well worth it as I saved fuel, tolls and parking costs not to mention at least 2-3 hours of my time that it would've taken to get downtown and back home!

My overall experience was positive. Little trouble uploading documents but resolved. I had two mineral deeds to file in Arkansas, two different counties, exactly the same form, only difference being property description; one was completed, one was canceled. I emailed to inquire why and the reply was in an automatic email indicating that email address was not monitored and if further action would be taken on Deeds.com part, I would be notified. Other than that, I would recommend their services to avoid using snail mail.

I was dubious at first that clicking on Deeds.com would lead to a phoney website to get personal info. I was very pleased that this is a legitimate & well-organized website with a large database of forms. Very easy to select forms, pay for them, & download them. No hassle, no pushing you to make additional purchases. Very straightforward & professional.

Deeds.com was quick, efficient, and cost effective. Deeds.com works with individuals where I found other companies only offer services to title companies, settlement companies, etc.

Thank you Deeds.com!

Thank you for your services...Attny office quoted a very large fee for the "TOD DEED" process, so this is very helpful that I am able to take care of this myself. If I would have researched your link sooner, I could have saved my Dad a lot of money for the "SURVIVORSHIP DEED". Thanks again & have a wonderful day:)
