i have filed and served all necessary parties including Does and unknown defendants. I filed a notice of lis pendens and have published the summons pursuant to statute. i have gotten a default entered against the mortgage co, the trust company, and will seek, if nec. one against Does and unknown defendants. but the settlement would seem to effectuate a simple transfer and i wouldnt need the adverse poss'n claim, in fact, i would withdraw the claim or seek to have it dismissed if the settlement goes through. so the a.p. claim was just the vehicle that got us to settlement and not the means under which we intend to resolve this.
