Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to answer your legal questions.
If I understand you correctly, you won a judgment against a mechanic in DE, and you want to know if that judgment can be the basis for a lien on the mechanic's DE real estate. If that is correct, then the answer is yes. A recorded judgment becomes a lien on the property owned by the person in the county where the judgment is recorded. If the judgment was recorded in a different county from where the property is located (including a different state), then the judgment holder must get a certified copy and take it to the county court where the property is located to have the judgment domesticated (i.e., recorded in the county). Once recorded, the judgment acts as a lien.
