If you want to look up an individual’s lien records, you might be wondering how to get started so that you can reach your goal. A lien is a document that gets attached to assets or property when a creditor is trying to collect payment. Those who use bank loans to buy property but don’t make their payments on time are subject to a personal lien. When placed on a property, a lien prevents the owner from selling their home until it is removed, and the following information will help you search for lien records. Similarly a tax lien or irs lien record is a result of unpaid taxes. There are also vehicle liens, mechanic liens, attorney liens and HOA liens to name a few. A free lien search online is the best place to start when looking up liens. Simply make your lien record request at the bottom of this blog and we’ll search our resources for you.

Free Lien Search Online

You have several options available to you when your goal is to look up a person’s lien records, and going to the county clerk is a great place to start. You will need the name and personal information of the person in question. Some courts will grant the request through the mail or over the phone. Others will require you to submit your request in person. But if you want to look up the record of an individual who does not live near your location, then you can try an online search. With online database repositories you can access billions of records online with a first and last name. When searching for free lien records online make sure that you verify any information that you find. This means that it?s best practice to use a birth date or address to insure you?ve found the correct line records for the correct person Many people have the same name.

How Liens Can Impact You

Do you have a lien against your assets or property? If so, it’s vital to learn about how they can impact your life and what you can do about it. Any liens that you have are public record and will show up in background and credit checks. Your lien records can also be viewed by curious individuals who want to know about your past.

So, having liens against you can impact your personal relationships, prevent you from getting jobs and ruin your credit rating. But liens can also make it impossible to sell your property until you pay them off, which is not always easy.

Lien Removal

At this point, you are likely wondering what steps will help you get liens removed from your property. Although many people believe that filing for bankruptcy will help, it won’t. In fact, filing for bankruptcy makes it easier for lien holders to collect the money that you owe them.

In addition to paying off the lien, you can remove it by granting ownership to the lien holder. It is not the most desirable solution. People often feel as though they have no other choice. In some cases, you can get a court order that mandates the removal of the lien. Court orders are often given when the lien holder asks for an unreasonable amount of money or otherwise engages in unethical behavior. A free lien search online can help you to identify the lien and what it is in reference to. The next step is to contact the relevant agencies to find out how to remove the lien.

    I am putting house up for sale and would love me to know if there are any liens on property located at 2306 Sheriff Drive in Grand Prairie, Tx 75051. I just wanted to know if anything would prevent me from selling my house

  53. squarryadministrator says:

    Marie, the short answer is yes. It sounds like you have a mechanics lien on the house for unpaid work. You might consider talking to a lawyer if you feel the electrician is being dishonest. Also make sure to document everything and have a timeline of work that was completed and what invoices were paid by you

  54. Marie Maltais says:

    An electrician put a lien on my property for $203. around 2016. I now contacted him to pay it off since I want to sell the property. He said he will send me a revised Invoice with interest. I have no problem with that. However, I fear he will come back with old invoices that my Contractor didn’t pay, although the Contractor has been paid by myself. Can the electrician come back now with old Invoices over and above the actual lien ?

    If you are attempting to apply for a FHA loan then you will want to contact the relevant courthouse about this lien search as they can offer you official information that can be used for lending, hiring, academic applications, security clearances, etc..

    A lien search can reveal all kinds of important information about debts that are unpaid or a loan that is still in effect. It’s best practice to verify your lien information on regular basis for accuracy as sometimes there are errors, especially if you’re trying to fix your background information for loans and such.

    Can a Lien Prevent You From Buying a House

    A lien can prevent you from buying a house, especially if you are trying to secure credit after a bankruptcy or a tax lien situation. Federal liens can make it difficult to secure a FHA loan or VA loan. The best practice would be to pay off your existing lien before trying to secure a home loan

    I’m looking to get approved for an FHA loan and I fear I may have an IRS lien against me… is there any way to perform the search that the lender will perform to know if I’m in the clear or not? Can I simply contact my local courthouse? Thanks in advance
