Was the lien placed before or after you obtained title to the property?
I see what you mean. There are some steps you can take to get it removed. The first thing you should do is to see if it is valid. it is possible that your ex paid his share to the attorney and the attorney just simply forgot to have the lien removed. After that, you may need to file for a modification of your settlement agreement if your husband agreed to assume this debt from the home. You may need to check the decree or settlement agreement to know for sure and ask the court to have the lien removed and placed onto some other property of your ex. The other thing that you could do, and I don't recommend it necessarily, is to pay the lien as well. Regardless, make sure that the county recorder/assessor has a copy of the lien release so you can sell your home.
