I received a lien notice from my county stating that a creditor applied for an abstract judgement. It reads that a lien has been recorded in the official records of this county which may affect the title to real property I own in this county. My question is.

Trying to sell my home and there are 2 liens on my property

I am trying to sell my home and there are 2 liens on my property. One is an abstract of judgment originating from a default judgment and the other is a mechanics lien that was not properly filed or recorded. The mechanics lien was filed approximately 2 years after completion of work and the proof of service is blank. I was never served for the default judgment based on non-payment of medical services that were covered by my health insurance. The property is in the state of California.

Can an abstract judgment be filed after 10 years?

I have just received an abstract judgment notice on a credit card from 2008 in California. They are saying they served me in 2010. I went to the County recorder last week and it was filed on 8/29. Can an abstract of judgement be filed after 10 years? Apparently this old debt was sold to a new attorney.
