What is a lis pendens?
Lis Pendens is a legal term that means "suit pending". A lis pendens is often called a preforeclosure (or preforeclosure) or lien. A lis pendens can be filed in various situations.
Lis pendens records offers you an excellent opportunity to locate motivated property owners who are looking to:
- sell their property quickly
- find someone to help them avoid foreclosure
Examples of lis pendens filings
For example, a contractor can file a lis pendens (mechanics lien) on a property to secure payment for unpaid work performed for the homeowner. The City of New York regularly files lis pendens for unpaid property taxes. Similarly, a condominium board can file a lis pendens for unpaid common charges. Finally, perhaps the most classic filing of all occurs when a bank (or "mortgagee") files a lis pendens (notice of mortgage default) on a property when the property owner has not paid the mortgage for at least three consecutive months.

What information is provided with each preforeclosure listing
The lis pendens records in SpeedMonster's database contain sixteen individual fields, the most of any other lis pendens provider in the U.S. Below is a listing of the fields in each record, and a description of each.
Usually the property owner, the lis pendens debtor is the entity who may owe an obligation or debt to the creditor. You can run powerful and flexible searches on this field and many others.
Property refers to the street address of the property.
The city where the property is located (New York, Brooklyn, Bronx, Staten Island and Queens). For Queens, the actual locality is the city, such as Jamaica, Hollis, Flushing, etc.
The state is NY. Please note that, at the present time, SpeedMonster focuses solely on lis pendens records in the five boroughs of New York City.
The zip codes have been formatted to conform to USPS addressing standards. Therefore, with very few exceptions, the zip codes are in Zip+4 format (e.g., 11213-2946).
The creditor is a bank or other entity to whom the debtor may owe an obligation or debt.
The Block and Lot numbers make up a two-number combination that identifies a particular property in a particular borough in New York City and in most other jurisdictions.
(See the description of Block above.)
The Index Number is the case number that the County Clerk assigns to the lis pendens filing. The Index Number usually consists of a series of digits followed by the two-digit year (e.g., 10258/06).
The filing date of the lis pendens. It has been alleged that some of the other lis pendens data providers modify the filing dates of their data in order to make them appear more current. At SpeedMonster, we find that practice to be deceptive and unethical. Whatever filing date that we give you, that is the actual filing date that you will find in the County Clerk lis pendens records.
The number of stories in the property.
A two-character property description code that the City assigns to the property. The Building Code consists of a letter followed by a digit.
The width and length of the building in feet.
The width and length of the lot in feet.
The value assessed by the City of New York (as of the filing of the lis pendens). Valuation is used for property tax purposes and does not refer to the actual market value of the particular property.
The amount of the last mortgage, if any, on the property. This amount may not accurately reflect the amount of the lis pendens, especially in the case of a tax lien.
