A Lis Pendens Surety Bond is a bond required by probate courts. Lis Pendens is written notice that a lawsuit has been filed that concerns a property title/real property.

The Lis Pendens Surety Bond is obtained by the defendant so they are able to sell/finance the property even though the lawsuit is still being settled in spite of the plaintiff’s Lis Pendens. A court requires this surety bond in order to guarantee the plaintiff will be satisfied if the original Lis Pendens is upheld.

This type of bond is solely based on personal credit. Our markets require that your FICO to be 650 or above. Surety1 only runs a soft inquiry on your credit, meaning that the pull will not affect your credit score.

Please note that a Lis Pendens surety bond requires that an attorney is involved with the case.
