Florida Home Liens

By Hannah Carroll, News 20 at Five

When homeowners go to sell their house, the last thing they expect to hear is they are not allowed, due to a lien. According to the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation, a lien could be filed against your property from a previous owner. If that happens, your property could be sold against your will. It is important for a homeowner to know if their property or house has a lien. Lawyer, Daniel Hartman says there are a number of steps to take once you have discovered the lien.

“If it’s a judgment or other type of lien, you can contact the person who holds the lien. Then you can negotiate with them and try to get them to file what’s called a release of lien to get the lien cleared from the property.”

Hartman says if you are looking to find out more information on liens, it is best to contact a local title company. They will be able to assist in finding liens and helping take the next step to have them removed.
