In Colorado a Lis Pendens should only be filed after a lawsuit affecting title to real property has been initiated. The Lis Pendens gives constructive notice to the world that litigation is pending and if you buy the property you are subject to the outcome of said litigation. This in effect puts a cloud on the title and discourages any transactions of said property. In general, the law that governs Colorado Lis Pendens is CO Rev Stat 38-35-110.
A Colorado Lis Pendens shall contain:
The name of the court where such action is pending
The names of the parties to such action at the time of such recording, and
A legal description of the real property.
A Colorado Lis Pendens should be recorded in the office of the county clerk and recorder in the county or counties in which the real property or any portion thereof is situated. Example: If a property spans two counties, record a Lis Pendens document in each county.
This Lis Pendens is formatted to meet Colorado recording requirements.

A. S. said: First, I am glad that you gave a blank copy, an example copy, and a 'guide'. It made it much easier to do. Overall I was very happy with your products and organization... however, things got pretty confusing and I have a pretty 'serious' law background in Real Estate and Civil law. With that said, I spent about 10+ hours getting my work done, using the Deed of Trust and Promissory note from you and there were a few problems: First, it would be FANTASTIC if you actually aligned your guide to actually match the Deed or Promissory Note. What I mean is that if the Deed says 'section (E)' then your guide shouldn't be 'randomly' numbered as 1,2,3, for advice/instructions, but should EXACTLY match 'section (E)'. Some places you have to 'hunt' for what you are looking for, and if you did it based on my suggestion, you wouldn't need to 'hunt' and it would avoid confusion. 2nd: This one really 'hurt'... you had something called the 'Deed of Trust Master Form' yet you had basically no information on what it was or how to use it. The only information you had was a small section at the top of the 'Short Form Deed of Trust Guide'. Holy Cow, was that 'section' super confusing. I still don't know if I did it correctly, but your guide says only put a return address on it and leave the rest of the 16 or so page Deed of Trust beneath it blank... and then include your 'Deed of Trust' (I had to assume the short form deed that I had just created) as part of it. I had to assume that I had to print off the entire 17 page or so title page and blank deed. I also had to assume that the promissory note was supposed to be EXHIBIT A or B on the Short Form Deed. It would be great if someone would take a serious look at that short section in your 'Short Form Deed of Trust Guide' and realize that those of us using your products are seriously turning this into a county clerk to file and that most of us, probably already have a property that has an existing Deed... or at least can find one in the county records if necessary... and make sure that you make a distinction between the Deed for the property that already exists, versus the Deed of Trust and Promissory note that we are trying to file. Thanks.
