How do I file a lien against real property in Oklahoma

Customer Question

I loaned hard money to an individual and want to place a lien against the home as they mentioned selling it.

You cannot file a lien in this circumstance.

The only options available to you would be if they voluntarily signed a mortgage (which is a voluntary lien) and you recorded it against their property, or if you went to court and sued them for non-payment, got a judgment and recorded that (which is an involuntary lien).

There is no right to simply file a lien against someone's property because they owe you money.
