Hi there
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Can I explain here?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I am short selling my real property. A title report found an old lien placed by my former spouse's divorce attorney. How can I get it removed? It was community property at the time and there was no court approval to place it.
Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 11 months ago

Great thanks! Just a moment...Remember, if you get an automatic phone call request and you would not like a phone call, you’re welcome to reject the offer.

Was the lien placed before or after you obtained title to the property?

Before, while we were in the divorce process.
Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 11 months ago

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.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
