Doctrine of lis pendens
‘Lis Pendens’ generally means ” pendency of a suit in a Court”.
It embodies the principle that the subject matter of the suit should not be transferred to third party during the pendency of the suit. The transferee is bound by the result of the suit in a case when such such property is transferred during the pendency of the suit.
The doctrine is contained in Section 52 of the Transfer of Property Act.
