Yes, you can prepare a document called a Notice of Interest. In the document, you'll have to give the legal description of the property, and state that you are claiming an interest in the property. This will put everyone who might be interested in buying the property on notice of your interest. It will come up on a title report, and it's very unlikely a title company would give title insurance without contacting you and resolving the issue with you. You'll have to file the notice with your county recorder's office.
Does that make sense?
