Lis Pendens Termination Date

Florida’s 4th DCA recently heard a case (2016 WL 4468134) concerning the termination date of a lis pendens.  The court concluded “the list pendens therefore logically must terminate along with the action.  The ‘action’ in this case was the foreclosure action initiated by the non-party bank, which terminated thirty days after the court’s issuance of a final judgment.”  Thus, in foreclosure cases where the sale date is extended out the foreclosing party should be cognizant of any liens and their implications.
