Seeking a lis pendence for Monday or Tuesday of next week to accompany a TRO fto be presented in Federal court.
Do you mean a lis pendens? A document you file in the property records to let people know ownership of a property is in dispute?
Not sure. The audit company I'm working with said I need to file a lis pendant in Federal court against my lender. The audit company would normally use their attorneys to do draw up the document but they only have attorney's in CA, & FL and not Oregon.
They are incorrect. A lis pendens is filed with the county clerk and serves as "notice to the world" that the title to the property is in dispute. You can certainly attach a copy to any lawsuit you file regarding the property but it has to be filed with the county clerk to achieve its purpose.The purpose, basically, is to entangle the title to the property so that it can't be sold until the title is cleared.You can read the statute on lis pendens at http://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/93.740If you would like any additional information or have more questions please don’t hesitate to ask but please do so my clicking on the Reply to Expert tab.We work for Positive Ratings, please click on one of the top three ratings or one of the Smile Faces, as this would be appreciated.
