  1. How does a lien on property work if it is the fault of a title company that the taxes were not paid ?
    My case it was title co that accidentally refunded taxes back to us,then asked us for a check to replace it ,then they (the title company) forgot to send the money to the tax collector then the tax collector put a lien on our other property. Now the title company is sending in the money and fees (supposedly ) how do I check on them ?

    • Hello Don,

      That sounds like a predicament with the title company. Unfortunately there is not much advise we can offer when it comes to resolving California property lien records. Our lien records resources are for reference only so you would have to contact the title company or perhaps a lawyer to find out what your property rights are. Below is a link to California property lien record laws, perhaps that will help. If you would like for us to locate a property lien record we would be happy to assist you. Just provide your full name, state and address where the property lien is located.
