When filing a case affecting title to real property or at any time after, as long as the case is pending, any party to the suit may file a Pendency of Action. To be effective it must be recorded at the Recorder of Deeds/ Clerks Office in every county where said property is located. (The notice shall be recorded in the same book and in the same manner in which mortgages are recorded.) From the time of recording, the Notice of Pendency, becomes constructive notice to would be purchasers or encumbrancers. Such Notice will contain (the names of the parties, the object of the suit, and the description of the real property in the county involved, affected, or brought in question, signed by the party or the attorney of the party.) (ORS 93.740)

I just completed my first deed filing and I’m very happy with the experience. The deeds staff was extremely supportive and helpful in guiding me through the learning curve of being my first filing without legal assistance. They saved me a ton in legal fees.

While I was initially disappointed I could not go to the local County to file my paperwork due to Covid-19, I was thrilled to work with Deeds.com. Their staff was INCREDIBLY FAST, super knowledgeable and the whole process happened from my computer in minutes. Very positive experience.

The docs were precise and accurate for my specific needs. I greatly appreciated the accompanying forms and instructional guidance to help make the use of the forms direct and easy to complete. Equally important, I was not suckered in to get a great price for the docs I needed only to be led to expensive subscriptions or additional fees. Very impressive and professional site.

I was frustrated by Orange County and all the other options they gave me to submit my paperwork. Deeds.com was the easiest to sign up for and I was impressed with how smoothly everything went. The price is well worth the convenience.
