Requirements of an Illinois Lis Pendens include; (the title of the action, the parties to it, the court where it was brought and a description of the real estate) Sec. 2-1901. A Lis Pendens is considered constructive notice once recorded in the county where the property is located, subsequent buyers or lien holders would be bound by the outcome of the case, (for the purposes of this Section, be deemed a subsequent purchaser and shall be bound by the proceedings to the same extent and in the same manner as if he or she were a party thereto) Sec.2-1901 Often cases include multiple plaintiff and defendants, this form has adequate space for multiple parties.

appreciate the ease of finding a group of forms without the need for a lawyer--the time and expense--for a basic transfer of joint tenancy following a death.

So far so good. I will be taking the report to the Marion County Clerks office this week to see if it meets their requirements. If so, I will definitely be able to recommend Deeds.com to others.

I ended up loading the same file twice and was unable to delete one of them. I did send e request in to have one deleted and I did get a response back that only one file was processed. This was done in a timely manner but required more additional time. It would have been nice to be able to delete the file myself and finish the process at the same time. Other than this every thing did go very well. Thank you

Very happy with the beneficiary deed forms packet. It was helpful to have an example of a properly filled out form. The only suggestion would be is to show where the exemption code should be placed on the form.

It would be helpful for documents to be in word format as well and for PDF version not to be locked.

Perfect quitclaim form. Easy to fill in with the required information and all the required information has a place (no easy feat in our county!). It is helpful that they include exhibit pages for larger blocks of information (our legal is 2 pages long). Great job folks!
