Customer Question

hello,, I filed a mechanics lien on a property after I remodeled it. I found out they transferred the deed to the property as soon as I was complete and before I filed the lien. I have a contract. Can you tell me how this changes the lien and explain how
I foreclose on the home.

It does not change the lien. A Mechanic's lien attaches to the property. A transfer of the deed does not negate the lien. If you attempted to foreclose, you would foreclose against the new name on the deed.

ok. would the property have to be sold or would I just take possession?
Expert:  Damien Bosco replied 2 years ago.
Most likely it would have to be sold because your lien would be less than the value of the property.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
ok so just to be sure I file a statement of lien with the probate court first. then do I sue to have the mechanics lien enforced or do I go straight to foreclosure lien?
