What do you mean? Did you purchase a home that has a lien on it? If so, you do not have a clear title to your home and the lien holder can take posession of your property. A lien should be paid off prior to completing a sale of a property. Good Luck
It means that you can't sell your house without paying your bills.
Whose responsible for the house payment= mortgagee or owner
When a lien is recorded against your property you cannot sell or mortgage the property until the debt is paid.
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
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.
Yes, but the specifics matter, as well. Consult a legal professional on this matter.
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.
You have to pay off your bills. That is why these people put a lien on your house.
Eventually the city will take possession of the property and sell it.
Check the laws in your state, but NO, they cannot. Your old house secures the mortgage on THAT house. Nothing else.
In BC, when you sell a house, the lawyer must pay the lien and any other outstanding debts, such as taxes and utilities, before the person selling the house receives any of the money from the sale
A person doesn't have a lien; only property can have a lien.
