My brother has a mental condition and is threatening to sue

Customer Question

My brother has a mental condition and is threatening to sue me. If my house is in both my name and my sons can he put a lien on it?

Hello, thank you for the question.

The short answer is yes, but only after he gets judgement against you. A lien is an enforcement measure, or to establish an interest in an asset for security.

The primary exception is in construction lien law, where an unpaid contractor can put a lien on a property as soon as a claim for unpaid work is prepared against the property owner.

That's a quick answer, does it help? I'll wait for your question or comment.

Is there anything else about this to discuss? If your brother has already brought a claim you could tell me about it.
