When an action that has been commenced and affects title to real property, any party to the case may file a Lis Pendens. Once recorded the Lis Pendens gives (constructive notice to a purchaser or encumbrancer of the) subject (property). (Every person) who subsequently purchases or encumbrances the subject property, (shall be bound by all proceedings taken after the filing of such notice to the same extent as if he or she were a party to the action.) (RCW 4.28.320) A Lis Pendens is not a lien but in effect acts like one, because of the fear of being bound to the results of the legal proceedings.

Such Lis Pendens shall contain:
(the names of the parties)
(the object of the action and)
(a description of the real property in that county affected thereby) (RCW 4.28.320)

(Washington LP Package includes form, guidelines, and completed example)

All I needed to do was changed from my previously married name to my now maiden name and a Quit Claim Deed was all I needed.
I loved that they offered a sample along with very detailed directions.
Great site!
Thank you!

Need to offer option to download ALL forms as a single (bookmarked) PDF, rather than as separates... Quite inefficient as is.

The actual transfer of deed form seems to be the only one not fillable in Adobe. Seems odd.

Forms & Guide easy to use. It would have been helpful if the counties with identical form packages were identified. I bought two packages when I could have used one.

Fill in the blanks portions are so limited, it makes it almost impossible to use.

Reply from Staff

Sorry to hear that David. Your order and payment has been canceled. We do hope that you find something more suitable to your needs elsewhere.

Uncertain about use as I am new to online forms. Through use I am sure it will feel more comfortable. I like the storage of filled in info forms because I might be using I will be using them or the info in the future.
