New Jersey Lis Pendens

New Jersey Lis Pendens Information

Lis Pendens is Latin for "litigation pending". Think of Lis Pendens as "notice of lawsuit". Once recorded this gives notice to the world that there is litigation pending over a parcel of real property. A buyer would be held subject to the outcome of the litigation. This greatly discourages any transfer of title until litigation is resolved. Common uses of a Lis Pendens are: Quit Title Action, Mechanic's Lien, Foreclosure, and part of a divorce proceeding (usually when the property is in one parties name).

N.J.S.A.2A:15-6. Written notice of pendency of action; contents

In every action, instituted in any court of this State having civil jurisdiction or in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey, the object of which is to enforce a lien upon real estate or to affect the title to real estate or a lien or encumbrance thereon, plaintiff or his attorney shall, after the filing of the complaint, file in the office of the county clerk or register of deeds and mortgages, as the case may be, of the county in which the affected real estate is situate, a written notice of the pendency of the action, which shall set forth the title and the general object thereof, with a description of the affected real estate.

No notice of lis pendens shall be filed under this article in an action to recover a judgment for money or damages only.

When a notice of lis pendens is filed in such an action, the plaintiff shall, within three days after the filing of the notice of lis pendens, serve upon the defendant a copy of the notice of lis pendens and of the complaint.

Jennifer B. said: I didn't care for it because I was having to do other things in between filling it out and all of a sudden it would not allow me back in it to make changes. Luckily I had saved it and then had to do FILL/SIGN option which looks ugly but that was the only way I could add what I needed.

Thomas D. said: The site is fine with one exception. About half the pdf files I downloaded were corrupted. I could not open them or view their contents. Fortunately, the link continued to work, so after I discovered this, I downloaded the corrupted files again, and they now seem fine. I do not know if my computer or the website caused this odd problem.

Debra B. said: I was very glad to have this option for filing a form as it would have taken 4 days due to offices being closed to the public during the COVID 19 epidemic. I found the process to be fairly simple and I was able to file the document within 24 hours.
