Nashville, TN asked in Real Estate Law for Tennessee

Q: can a property be sold with a lien on it because the title company placed a bond to discharge lien with conditions?

We placed a mechanics lien on a property but they were able to sell it. The title company placed a bond to discharge lien but with a condition that if the ruling was in our favor. The contractor and owner under which the building permit was filed under and we got our permit. That the they will have to pay and not the insurance that issued the bond to discharge lien. It says they would have to pay the amount under which we filed the lien and also the court costs. So is there a certain type of lawyer we have to find so we can file a suit in order to collect our money. Thank you

A: If you do not file suit to execute your m & m lien within a short period of time, you lose it. Hire a competent attorney now to see if you can execute it. If you still have a lien, it is against the property, not any of the owners.
