Can You Sell A House With An Existing Lien In Colorado?
You may be wondering whether or not you can sell your house that has an existing lien on it, and the answer is yes you can, as long as the lien is paid in full once the sale goes through. The quickest way to find out if you have any liens on your title is to have your local title company perform a title search on your home to see if there are any liens or encumbrances that pop up during the initial title commitment report. If there are, then those liens will be paid off first before any proceeds are delivered to you, the seller, once you sell your home privately to a local Colorado home buyer such as us here at HBR Colorado – Home Buyers & Renovators
How Does A Lien Work?
A lien is basically a note that is made on the title of the property, that gets recorded with the title company, that says that the particular debt mentioned in the lien must be satisfied on the successful sale of the property. This is to protect creditors, and designed to prevent homeowners from running up tabs with various contractors and other creditors, and then simply selling the property. This way, they cannot successfully sell the property without paying off all of the lien holders that are on the title.
Different Types Of Property Liens – Mechanic’s Liens Vs. Tax Liens
- Mechanic’s Liens. A mechanic’s lien is exactly what it sounds like – a lien that is opened up by a licensed mechanic or contractor who is demanding payment for services rendered. These types of liens usually result in a dispute over work completed and payments not delivered. For example, if a roofer finished the job on your roof but was never paid in full, he would open a mechanic’s lien against the title of your property for the disputed amount which he claims you owe. This would then have to be satisfied before you can successfully sell the property.
- Property Tax Liens. Property tax liens are liens placed on the title of your home by your local government for failing to keep up with your property tax payments, and your home can actually go into property tax foreclosure if you fall far enough behind. Most people don’t take these types of liens seriously enough until it’s too late. You can sell your home to get out of property tax foreclosure, and that is one of the services that we offer here at HBR Colorado.
