To find out if there is a lien on your house, you can research this at your local register of deeds office and or research this with the local court of clerks office in your county in which you live or for the county where the property is located.

No. Once a house is built it becomes an intrinsic part of the real estate. If the land has a lien on it the lien holder will get your house.

In this state a credit card judgment can not put a lien on a house. Other answers indicate that in other places it can. You will need to find out about the law in your area.

A lien itself? No. A lien is a claim of ownership. But if someone has filed a lien on a house, he's probably owed money, so penalties, fees and interest would apply there.

User Avatar

Yes, but the lien has to be satisfied with the proceeds from the sale. Or the buyer has to accept the lien, not always allowed.

User Avatar

Yes, a lien can be filed on a piece of real property, regardless of the owner. However, the reason for the lien has to be directly related to the actual owner or the property itself. i.e., if a trust owns a house and I live in the house, and you have a judgement against me, there is no attaching a lien on the house for my debt.

A lien can be put on the property if he has a debt that is owed. If he doesn't own the house, a lien can still be placed on the property. The property has its own value and so does the house.

A company cannot put a lien on a house if you do not own it. In the court's eyes, that is not your property and therefore a lien cannot be attached.

Assuming you are talking about an IRS lien, then yes. If you were not liable for the taxes, then the lien should not be on your property. The first thing to determine is whether or not the lien actually attached to your property. If the previous owner of the house owned the house at the time the lien was filed, then the lien probably legally attached to the house. If this is the case, this is something you should take up with the title company that did the title work when you purchased the house. More common is that the IRS filed a lien and the address they had on record was still his old house (your house). Just because the lien had that address on it doesn't mean you have a lien on your house. If the property wasn't his, then it did not legally attach. If a title company still has issues with this (if you are trying to sell your house), you may need to get a Certificate of Non-Attachment from the IRS to show them that it's not attached.

The lien is on the house. That's one of the reasons it goes through escrow, to find out if there are any outstanding liens on it. If there are outstanding liens on the house that are discovered in escrow, the buyer can make the seller pay the liens or stop the sale of the house, but if they are not found, the lien still exists and the buyer has to pay them after the house is in their name. Escrow is a good thing although it is time consuming and costly.

The lain stays with the mortgage. And if the owner of the mortgage does not settle up with the lien holder that person cannot sell their house, car, boat or whatever the lien is on. They have to pay lien first or sell and before they get the money the amount of the lien will be deducted from total sell

They usually can't force the homeowner to sell the house. The lien will prevent the house from being sold. The matter will have to be settled and the lien released before the house can be sold.
