Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

If the executor of the estate did not negotiate with Medicaid to satisfy the medicaid debt even though the succession is closed, you are going to need to seek to file suit in court to remove the lien because it was placed after the succession put the home in your name and as such it would arguably be invalid. You would need to engage a local succession attorney now to file in court to vacate the lien if you cannot negotiate resolution with the Department of Health over the lien.

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.
