Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
What is the cloud you're trying to remove?
The only way to resolve this would be to file suit to remove cloud and confirm title (in your name). You would have to sue the lienholder and ask the court to remove the lien as it is improper and not a legitimate lien on your property.
The best way to find a lawyer would be to visit www.martindale.com.
You can search for a real estate lawyer in your area via this site. As for costs, that really depends on how much fighting you have to do. It could cost a few thousand dollars or more than ten thousand.
Also, you can seek your legal costs and expenses from the court, but it's not guaranteed. Usually, attorneys fees are awarded only if there's no legal justification for the actions of the other party.
If you need anything further, please let me know. If not, please take time to positively rate our conversation so I may receive credit for assisting. Thanks.
