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.

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.

Disappointed. Description of Lien discharge form does not indicate it is specific to Mechanic liens. I'm inexperienced with liens & should have contacted someone before I ordered.

Sorry to hear that, it does look like our product description was lacking clarity. We have updated the description to better reflect the documents. We have also canceled your order and refunded the payment. Hope you have a great day.

Well, we are 10 days from leaving the country for months and needed to notarize and record deed changes to our rental properties. We worried about USPS, UPS, DHL, etc. and hardcopies in the County's bureaucrats' hands. Soooo, we learned of Deeds.com from the County web site via one of the bulk digital recorders telling me about Deeds.com. Hit their site, read their instructions, concluded my tiny brain and decrepit abilities could handle the chore. WITHIN AN HOUR OF UPLOADING EVERYTHING INCLUDING C.C. FOR PMT IT WAS RECORDED AND I printed out copies. WORTH the $$ in speed, convenience and PEACE of mind. Pardon the loud trumpeting.

I was on several sites but this was the easiest and cost effective. No bait and switch like on several sites where you get a "free trial" and then they started billing you monthly for legal services. Excellent.

Easy to understand, quick access, inexpensive, and I took it to my registrar's office and he said the warranty deed was good to go. Thanks for saving me a bundle in lawyer's fees.
