Removing a Judgment Lien from the Title to Your Home, Chapter 13 and Your Vehicle Loan or Lease, No Federal Student Loan Payments through January. You can also call the county clerk or go to their office and inquire regarding the existing liens. One simple way to remove a lien on a property involves paying off the owed debt, whether it’s a mortgage or a judgment lien placed on your property by a creditor. If you do not pay back the loan, the lender can take away the house. If you work with an attorney, you may be able to negotiate a lower payoff amount. document.getElementById('upsnap_aaId').value=245; If the debt is valid, pay the creditor in full. a.src=n;

Among other things, you must tell the judge why you did not respond to the lawsuit (this can be done by written declaration). A judgment lien against a house gives creditors the right to take possession of the house from the debtor if the debtor fails to fulfill their obligations according to the contract. And until it is paid, it can haunt you and your home for many years. For example, assume your home has equity (before accounting for the judgment lien) of $25,000. Today’s is about erasing a judgment lien from your home after it has already attached. 3. For example, if you do not pay your property taxes, a second lien might be filed on your property. A judgment lien can turn a debt you owe that is unsecured—does not legally attach to anything you own—into a secured debt—secured by what you own, such as your home.
