I can only assume you are asking how can someone put a lien on a home in Canada? The owner of the home would have to owe you or the government a lot of money before you could put a lien on their home and even if it was a private affair I'm not 100% sure a private party can put a lien on someone's home. It's usually banks and or money owed to governments who put liens on a persons home.

Can the lien against my property be released when the the original owner apparently with a tax debt died.?

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.

A lien is a security interest in the property. A lien might arise from a loan. If you buy a car with the bank's money the bank will put a lien on the car.

The lien must be paid at the time of the sale.

This is because they need to provide clear title to the house to the new owners.
