Heirs Property

My grandfather died years ago without a will. He had real estate that is now considered heirs property, but no one living has title to the property. The title is still in his name. One of my cousins started a proceeding in the Court of Common Pleas for the title to the property. In the court papers two terms are used that I do not understand. What is the meaning of ''Quiet Title'' and ''Lis Pendens?''

Thanks for your assistance.
