How much does this person owe you?
If the money you owe this person is a mortgage for the property, why don't you already have a lien on the property?
Are you actually asking if you can foreclose the property?
To get a lien on the property, you first have to get a judgment. To get a judgment, you have to sue this person in Civil Court. You can hire an attorney to do this for you, or you can do it yourself. If you want to do it yourself, you can get the necessary forms from the clerk at the Civil Court in your county (or borough if in NYC).
I think this is what you wanted to know. If not, please let me know.
