What Is a Lien?

A lien is a legal right or claim on a property belonging to someone you owe until that person discharges the debt. You cannot sell a property subject to a lien without the lien's holder's consent.

Liens are voluntary or consensual, such as a lien on a property for a loan. However, a debtor can place an involuntary or statutory lien when seeking legal action for not paying your debt.

Types of Lien You Can Remove in Texas

There are different types of liens. Various institutions can place a lien on you, including financial institutions, small businesses, governments, and even individuals. Below are some common types of liens in Texas.

  • Bank lien: This lien is usually granted when a person takes a loan from a bank to buy an asset. Whether it's a vehicle or a real-estate property, the lien gives the bank the right to seize and sell it if you don't honor your loan repayment process.
  • Judgment lien: This kind of lien is placed by the court due to a debt lawsuit. The judgment lien ensures that the lender will liquidate the debtor's assets for failing to pay the debt.
  • Mechanic's lien: This lien is placed on real property if its owner doesn't pay for the services provided, especially repair services. It allows the debtor to go to court and seek the auctioning of the property to pay off the lien holder.
  • Real estate lien: This is a legal right or claim on a property that a debtor doesn't honor its payments. It's common in cases of mortgages.
  • Tax lien: this type of lien allows the Internal Revenue Service or IRS to place a lien on your assets for failing to pay your tax. It will enable the IRS to establish a legal claim on your vehicle, bank account, and home. This means that you cannot sell your car or your home.
