Back in 2009 we filed Ch 13. We have now completed that Ch

Good morning, Back in 2009 we filed Ch 13. We have now completed that Ch 13 plan. During this process, we had a 2 mortgage that we didn't pay on since the filing, then the CU got bought out by another bank at which time they wrote the 2nd loan off as a bad debt. They still have a lien on our property. back in May of 2014 we threw them a 5000.00 settlement offer. The balance is 62,000. They declined. We are going to try again to get that lien released on our home.Is there a statute of limitations where they can't collect anymore or what offer do you think we should throw out to them? Not sure how to go about this. it's been sitting at a attorneys office for years now with no communication.Thank you
