Senehi v. City Lights at East Hills, LLC

Notice of Lis Pendens/Pending Action [Sample-Names Withheld]]


Client, Plaintiff, is seller of parcel of property. While escrow was pending, Buyer/Defendants induced Plaintiff to sign a Quitclaim Deed, deeding the subject property to Defendants. Defendants then re-parcelized the subject property with three other parcels and recorded the quartet of parcels as one two larger parcels with new "identities." Thus, in order to protect the integrity of his own parcel, Plaintiff was forced to record a Lis Pendens on all four parcels. For those who don't know, a "Lis Pendens" is a "Notice of a Pending Action" which is recorded against the title/parcel at the county recorder. It is a "Cloud" on title, making it difficult for the putative title holder to transfer, divide or borrow against the parcel until the "Pending Action" is resolved and the "cloud" is removed. Upon being served with the Lis Pendens, Defendants contacted Plaintiff's counsel to discuss settlement.
