Dear Customer,
I am very sorry to learn of this situation. If you have already lost the trial court matter (and an appeal is not a viable option - you should have talked to your trial counsel (attorneys) about this), there is not another lien that is going to prevent your daughter from selling the property (it legally belongs to her and she can dispose of it as she wishes).

Be aware, that she can also go through the "unlawful detainer" (eviction) process and evict you from the property!

As far as the loan that you made to her, you can sue her for breach of contract. The statute of limitations for breach of oral contract (any unwritten contract) is 4 years from the date of breach. You can use the copy of the cashier's check as evidence in support of your claim. Depending on the specific facts, you may be able to try and get a "prejudgment lien" against the property or any proceeds from sale, but this is extraordinary relief and is not commonly granted. You will definitely want to work with your attorneys to discuss this possibility.

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.
