Can I Sell My House With A Lien?
First, what is a lien? A lien comes in many shapes and sizes, however, they all are related to your property. A lien is defined as a right to keep possession of property belonging to another person until a debt owed by that person is discharged.
Types Of Liens Include:
Property Tax Liens
Typically take priority over all other liens and mortgages. If unpaid, the government can force a sale of your property to pay for the unpaid property taxes.
IRS Tax Liens
Failure to pay back taxes can cause the IRS to place a lien on your property.
Mechanics or Contractor Liens
Contractors who have performed work on your property, and have not been paid, can file a lawsuit and place a lien on your property. In some states, they can force the sale of the house to expedite repayment.
Judgment Liens, Child Support, Alimony
Unsecured Creditors (credit card companies, personal loans, medical debt, etc) that successfully sue the debtor can place a judgment lien against a property.
There are a multitude of liens and situations out there. If you are in a situation where you have a lien against your property, YOU CAN STILL SELL THE PROPERTY!
