IN CORAL SPRINGS, FL
You’re about to buy a new home or sell the one you own when your real estate attorney tells you that you have an open lien on the property, and that you can’t sell it until it is closed. What does this mean lien removals?
A lien is a legally enforceable judgment placed against a property. The government can place a lien on your home if you’re behind in your taxes, a court can order a lien if you’ve lost a case involving money in court, and a contractor who does work on your home can file a lien if you have not paid, among others.
NOTE: A home that has a lien on it cannot be sold until the lien removals.
Often, this is done by paying what you owe, or by working with the people the money is owed to to create a payment plan. The Law Office of Gary M. Landau often gets involved in this, to speed up the process of removing the lien.
Sometimes, a lien has been improperly placed and can be removed by a judge. This would happen if the lien-holder failed to properly send notification of the judgment or missed other steps, including improperly citing the amount or the property description or passing any deadlines.
Our attorneys will examine your lien on your South Florida property and all supporting documents and give you legal advice on how best to resolve the situation.

STEPS NEEDED TO CLOSE ON A REAL ESTATE DEAL
Refinancing your home requires a similar type of closing as a new home purchase, with a closing agent overseeing the various legal elements and paperwork. Your lender may ask you to use their closing agent for your refinancing, but under Florida law you can select any closing agent you desire.
Choosing the Law Office of Gary M. Landau, P.A. can save you money on your title insurance premium during refinancing if you have a prior owner’s title policy from when you purchased your home.
