When a Lis Pendens is attached to a property, it means a document has been recorded with the county recorder, notifying the public that the property is subject to litigation.  A Lis Pendens may affect ownership of the property.  A potential buyer would take title subject to the rights of the person who recorded the document.  If the person who files the Lis Pendens wins the litigation, they can get title to property, even if the buyer paid for the property and was unaware of the Lis Pendens.  Title companies will generally not provide title insurance on properties that have Lis Pendens recorded against them.
