You can call or go on the county auditors website and find out the history of a certain piece of property. This will list the liens on the house.

Liens that must be paid are local, state and federal taxes, municipal services liens, the subject mortgage and any liens that were recorded prior to the recording of the foreclosed mortgage.

Can homeowners still use the facilities even if there is a lien placed on their home?

A lien is filed with the county clerk against a particular property at a particular address. The homeowner/s is/are free to make improvements to the house and continue to use the house and all its amenities; it's still his/her/their house. If the house at that address is ever sold, the title company conducts a search of liens against the house. Any outstanding liens are paid out of escrow. This gives the seller a smaller bottom line at close of sale. It also satisfies the lien, and the lienholder.

If you purchase a property that has an IRS lien against it does the purchaser acquire the lien with the property and become responsible to pay it or what happens to the lien when a house is foreclosed?

State laws may vary, and some liens could PREVENT you from recording a sale, if you try to record a deed without paying off (releasing) the liens. I'm certainly no expert on liens, but there may be nothing preventing a purchaser from buying a property subject to liens (claims) accrued by the previous owners. You could buy property with a mortgage on it, tax liens on it, mechanic's liens, municipal liens, etc., as long as you (the buyer) understand that ANY of these liens could result in claims being made against you, and you should get some guarantee (bond, security, payment) from the seller in exchange for accepting this sort of risk.

Who is responsiblefor the lien when a house gets sold the buyer or the seller?

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.
