Filing or Defending Against a Lis Pendens Lien
When someone wants to file a lawsuit regarding a piece of real estate or a real estate title, the first step is to file a lis pendens lien with the local real estate records office. This serves as a notice to other parties with an interest in the property, including potential buyers, leasers or investors. A lis pendens lien will make it very difficult to close any real estate transactions. We represent Texas businesses that need to:
- File a lis pendens lien: If you are going to file a lawsuit on a piece of property, filing the lien may safeguard against any title transfers before your dispute is resolved.
- Expunge a lis pendens lien: If a lien has been placed against your property, we can take steps on your behalf and have it expunged.
