What happens to a lien on a house after it expires?
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
How do you file a lien on a house that is in a trust in Massachusetts?
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.
Can a landlord put a lien on your house?
If you have a landlord then you don't own the house. A lien on a house would be against the owner of the property. The landlord owns the house and they wouldn't place a lien on their own property. If you owe a debt to a landlord they can file an eviction in the housing court and file a lawsuit against you for the money you owe.

What happens if a private investor places a lien on your home?
To get a lien he would have had to show a judge the he had a right to do so. You would have to owe him for goods or services. It would have to of been concerning the house. You borrowed money on it, had work done to it and did not pay as promised. If a judge agreed, you have a lien on it. I believe the lien is on the house not you. If you sell it, the lien stays with the house. It would most likely have to be paid before ownership was transferred. If the new owner did not research the deed, it would become his responsibility if he accepted ownership as is.

Does a lien on property mean it has to be sold in tn?
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.

Can a company file a mechanics lien against your property if the builder of your barn owes them money?
Yes, a company can file a mechanics lien against property if the builder of the barn owes them money. This can be a nightmare. To get rid of the lien, a property owner might have to pay the lien holder and then sue the builder for return of funds. This tactic is not fair to the property owner because, if the builder was already paid for the barn, the property owner now has to pay double.

How do you lien a house in Canada?
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.

Who is responsible for a lien that previous owner had on a house?
The lien doesn't go away. It is still a debt against the person named in the lien and the property is subject to the lien. The creditor could have the property seized and sold depending on the circumstances. The new owner would have to pay the lien to redeem the property or lose the land and any money they paid over to the seller when the land was transferred. That's why you should always have the title examined by a professional before you buy. Any liens that are disclosed by the title examination should be cleared up before you take title.
