Can you please start at the beginning and set out the facts?

Then provide a specific question please.


Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I am selling my business and we found that I have a loan out with the com0any and for some reason there's a lean on my assets in the company I didn't sign any documents stating this and in order for to complete the sale I have to show the people purchasing my company a statement paid I full. So my question is how can I get the lean off my assets in order to sell?

Expert:  Debra replied 9 months ago.

Were you sued?

Are these assets that were financed?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I don't know they never mentioned it to me
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
It was a consolidation loan
Expert:  Debra replied 9 months ago.

I believe what happened is that you consented to the lien when you got the loan. They would have wanted security for the loan.

So the lien won't be lifted until the full loan is paid off.

Do you see what I mean?

But I didn't sign for this
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
how am I liable for this
Expert:  Debra replied 9 months ago.

But you likely did without reading all the fine print.

It is the same when someone leases a car or finances a car. There is always a lien registered and often the car owner has no idea they actually consented.

You can call the creditor and ask how the lien was registered. They will likely say you consented when you got the loan. Then ask for a copy of what you signed.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
then I get a copy of it and then what do I do
Expert:  Debra replied 9 months ago.

If you see that you consented you will then know nothing went wrong.

If the loan was paid off then you ask them to remove the lien.

If the loan was not paid off you have to pay it off to have the lien removed.

Expert:  Debra replied 9 months ago.

Is there anything more I can help you with at this point in time?
