Unless she signed some sort of lease, why would she be on the hook to pay the gas bill after she moved out? One assumes that she was paying the bill while she lived there, but now that she's gone, she doesn't expect to pay for gas she isn't using. Seems reasonable to me. Why would it ever get to the point that she has to put a lien on your house? Why didn't you just reimburse her? And if you weren't paying her, why didn't she take you to small claims court for the money? I don't get this one.

When she moved out, you should have called and put the gas in your name only. She should have called and turned it off. However, to recover the situation, you pay up her account for anything that was after her move-out date and change the account into your name only. Next time you have a renter, include the utilities in the price you charge for rent. Reasonable communication, or a certified letter stating the facts and including a check or receipt would do.

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.
