As long as your note (lien) is properly recorded, it should be paid at the time of sale.You should have been contacted by the escrow company handling the sale to get a payoff demand so that they know exactly how much to calculate into the close of escrow to be earmarked for satisfaction of your note.If you have any questions regarding whether or not your note is properly recorded, or whether your note is being properly treated, I highly recommend retaining an attorney right away - it is going to be far less expensive for you to deal with the problem now (a month before closing) than trying to recover your money after the sale has occurred.
