    Default Involuntary Lien on Home

    My question involves real estate located in the State of: California
    Got letter in the mail that was addressed to my address but did not have my name on it. Open it anyway because it was from the county registrar-recorder office. It stated that a involuntary lien has been place on my property. Should I be concerned? I bought this house last year and there were no liens then. I have no clue who the person is named on the lien notice. Do I do something or forget about since the lien notice is not in my name?

    not if you don't mind a lien on your house.

    If it was me, I would want to know why a lien was placed against my property. Then I would want to know if the lien holder can foreclose on the lien and cause me to lose my house. Then I would want to find out how to remove the lien.

    Shouldn't the lien be placed in the name of the title holder? The lien notice wasn't even in my name(the title holder). Or can a lien be placed on a property no matter who is named as title holder?

    How about telling us enough facts that we know what's going on?

    On Sept of 2010 I purchased a home. Every once in awhile I would get mail for the previous owner, which lost the house, I would give it back to mailman or throw it out. A couple a days ago another letter showed up but I opened it because it was from the County Registrar/Recorder. In the letter it stated that "the enclosed document may constitute a lien against your real property". The document also contains info that a judgment was entered againt the previous owner on Oct of 2010. I'm confused is there a lien on my home or not?

    Maybe.

    Check with the register of deeds.
