A lien is a type of security interest that is placed on property or asset to secure the payment or re-payment of a debt or other financial obligation. In your public record a lien record says that you were unable to pay a debt and there is financial leverage placed upon your financial assets or paycheck. The most common type of lien is an IRS tax lien and it’s just as you might guess … it’s from not paying your taxes on time.
