How do I put a lien on property for money owed me

How do I put a lien on property for money owed me?

You can't just place a lien against property because someone owes you money. You need to file a law suit over the dispute and win, whether by trial or default- and that judgment becomes a lien against all property owned by the debtor.

In your state, there is no additional paperwork- a filed judgment is automatically a lien.

Good luck. If you have more questions, please reply. Otherwise, kindly click the green "Accept" button to close this thread. Best wishes.
