IMPORTANT UPDATED NOTICE REGARDING REQUIRED ELECTRONIC FILING OF LIS PENDENS
Please be advised that pursuant to Public Act SB 2677, all Lis Pendens notices are now required to be filed electronically with the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation. Due to efficiencies and savings realized in filing Lis Pendens notices electronically, most filers had earlier transitioned to this method upon the Department’s launch of electronic filing in October 2014.
