How to find out if they still have a lein on Home

There are three ways to do this now. (years ago one had to physically go down to the deed room at the court house)


Liens are a matter of public record once recorded. To find if there are any liens, here are your options:


  • Search the county recorder, clerk, or assessors office online. All you need is the name of the property owner, or its address. If your county does not have the data online, then:
  • Visit the county recorder, clerk, or assessor’s office in person. Generally, you will find the people in these offices will be quite helpful, and can even give you pointers if you need help.
  • Contact a title company. Title representatives can be extremely helpful in many ways . . . finding liens is one of them.


Here's a good place to start:

Please let me know if you have any questions at all.


If this HAS helped, and you DON’T have other questions … I'd appreciate a positive rating (using the stars or faces on your screen, and then clicking “submit")

Otherwise I’m working for no crediting at all here


Thank you!
