It usually means that the local municipality has placed a judicial hold on a person or their property. Sometimes both. If this is a property question, then its probably a case of the owner not paying utilities or he could owe certain fines to the municipality. In either case those debts would create a Lis Pendens on the property and would need to be satisfied for the property to have a clear title. Hope this helps. Call me if you want me to check into a specific property for you.
