A lien against property can be a huge financial burden. It can prevent you from selling or refinancing your home, and it can even lead to foreclosure. If you are faced with a lien against your property, don’t panic! There are things that you can do to try to resolve the situation. In this blog post, we will discuss what to do when you have a lien against property that you own.
Talk to the Lien Holder
The first thing that you should do if you have a lien against property that you own is to contact the lien holder. Explain your situation and try to work out a payment plan. Many times, the lien holder is willing to work with you because they would rather receive partial payment than nothing at all.
Negotiate a Payment Plan
If the lien holder is not willing to work with you, you can try to negotiate a payment plan on your own. Start by contacting the lien holder and explaining your financial situation. Then, propose a reasonable payment plan that you can afford. Remember to be realistic—if you cannot make the payments, the negotiation will be for nothing.
Sell the Property
If you cannot afford to pay off the lien, another option is to sell the property, or the lien, to Mayflower Judgments. This will allow you to pay off the lien and hopefully have some money left over. However, selling your property is a big decision and should not be taken lightly. Be sure to consult with a real estate agent before making any decisions.
Refinance the Property
If you have equity in your property, you may be able to refinance and use the extra money to pay off the lien. This is a good option if you cannot afford the payments on your own and selling the property is not an option.
