How Did a Lien End up on My Property?
A lien is placed against property only after a creditor seeks and is awarded a judgment against you. This means that a lawsuit was filed against you at some point. You may or may not have been aware that you had been sued. In fact, chances are that you were not properly notified of the lawsuit in the first place. Our attorneys will conduct a careful analysis of the underlying judgment to discern if there is an opportunity to vacate it and challenge the lawsuit that resulted in the judgment.
What Do I Need to Know About Liens?
In New York, a lien can be placed against real estate in the consumers name and against someone’s personal property (i.e. things like cars, jewelry, art and other valuable items). In New York a lien can last up to 20 years if it was renewed before the first 10 years have passed.
