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 child's name is ***** ***** the deed, then no lien can be placed on the home. They cannot place a lien on a home just because they live or use an address does not give anyone ownership rights on the house. If the adult is not an owner listed on the deed, no lien can be placed on the property.
