Yes, and if you don't satisfy the lien within the prescribed period, the tax assessor can even "take" the property with a tax deed and "give" it to the state to auction to the public.

A lien can be placed on a property in the United States when a person owes a creditor a sum of money. In the state of Missouri, a lien can be on the property for ten years.

In order to collect on the lien, you will need to see a real estate attorney and have the lien foreclosed. In some states, deficiency judgments are allowed (meaning that if the property is worth less than the lien, then any unsatisfied portion of the foreclosure judgment could be executed on other property of the defendants). See the phone book for real estate attorneys who give "free consultations."

Yes, you can get a lien on your homesteaded property in Florida. A court will put a lien on the property if money is owed in a judgement.

Place a lien on the property,house,etc. You will have to go to the courthouse where the property is and file a lien against the person(s) who owes the money. If it's a house,building,etc. the property cannot be sold until the lien is solved. It varies by state so check with your local courthouse.

What a "Pre-Lien" is depends upon the state. It can be a Preliminary Lien Notice that notifies the owner(s), lender(s) and primary contractor that you have been contracted to provide material, labor or services for the improvement of real property and will ultimately look to local lien laws to collect your money, should it be required. Some states only require a Warning Notice be delivered prior to the lien being recorded. These notices warn that you have not been paid for work and will be liening the property within a specific time period.
