Section 2: Filing of Notice of Lis Pendens

Anchor: #i1000890

Procedure

The LPA must file a Notice of Lis Pendens in the real property records of the county clerk of the county where the land is located and should be done at the same time the plaintiff's petition is filed. A duplicate original should also be filed in the court papers along with the eminent domain petition. If a Notice of Lis Pendens is not recorded prior to filing of a certified copy of the final judgment, the land may be sold to a purchaser who is without knowledge of the pending litigation. This could require a refiling of the plaintiff’s petition against the new owner.
