I have a condo unit that I want to sell and a willing buyer

i have a condo unit that I want to sell and a willing buyer BUT there is a messy problem with the lien placed by the COA, that's been in dispute for a number of years. i am willing to pay off the lien to clear title for the purchase and they are willing to file a Release of Lien in return. I have had so many hassles with the condo association in the past, i want my payment of the lien, the removal of the lien in it's entirety from the records, the completion of the agreement of sale and transfer of title to occur in one escrow process. is this possible in the State of Washington?
