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 is my first time using this amazing service. I wish I was told about this before I went all the way downtown, drove thru construction zones, paid for parking only to be told the computer system had crashed. rnI was referred to Deeds.com and I will not use the downtown system again.
