When Is A Lis Pendens Used?

A Lis Pendens bond is only required when the plaintiff wishes to block the sale of a property before a judgment is made. This could occur at the beginning of a trial or midway through. At any point in the case, a plaintiff may use a lis pendens to protect his/her interest in the property. This surety bond covers the value of the property to protect the defendant against a loss.

What Is the Cost?

Surety bond amounts fluctuate as they are based on the value of the property, the state’s mandates, and if the court issues any extra provisions. For example, the bond may have to include interest.
