Okay. Thanks
Lawyer: Nisha Jones,

No, if you are current on your restitution payments, there will not be any liens placed on your property.

However if you end up not paying restitution, the victim in the underlying crime who is receiving payments can petition for a lien to be entered against your property.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!

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.
