convey property, I a in process of evicting him .. Can I file a lis pendes on y property so he can not do convey nor place lien on y property

1 Lawyer Answer

A: A notice of lis pendens does not preclude another person from placing a lien (fraudulent or not) on a parcel of real estate.

If your name is on the deed as the owner of the property, a notice of lis pendens would serve no purpose for you.

In fact, if the tenant were to sue you to claim that you have an unrecorded agreement to sell the property to him, one course of action he should take is to file a notice of lis pendens if his name is not on a recorded deed. That then gives notice to third parties that there is a dispute over ownership of the property
