Under Idaho law, you would have to file in the court in the county in Idaho where the property is located to contest the validity of the lien, based upon the information that you told me. The Idaho court would then issue an order to remove the lien from the property and it would be taken off, given you the right to sell the property free and clear.

You could also order a title report that would show the invalidity of the lien and still go ahead and sell the property by disclosing all to the buyer. You would still be able to sell the property, with a slight reduction in price, knowing that the buyer would have to take the action to clear the lien. But there is nothing stopping you from selling now with the lien in place, and the buyer takes on all responsibility, knowing that the lien is still there and has to be cleared.

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.

I am purchasing a house under a land contract. The contract is for 2 years with the balance due at that time. Not only due I have the investment from the payments, but I have also put over $50,000 into renovations.

Is there anything I can do? Do I have the right to sell the house, pay off the land contract, and recoup at least a portion of my investment?… read more
