Subsequent purchasers or owners always take subject to liens placed on the property. The lien is held against the property and not against you personally. It depends on the type of lien but you would have to attack the validity of the claim that is the basis of the lien. If it is a mechanic lien or a loan such as a mortgage on the home this will be difficult. If it is a judgment lien on a homestead, then you would have a chance.

Most likely if the lien does not fit into the categories described in the link, you will not be able to remove it.
