Q: how do I tell if i have a lien on my property in missouri, cass county?
If i have a civil judgement, but the loan is strictly in my wifes name, but being married my name is on the deed, will that judgement money be taking out of the sale of the house?
A: To see if the judgment has been filed as a lien against your house, you can ask a title company to run a property profile or a preliminary title search on your home. That will reveal if the lien has been filed. If so, and the house is in both your name and your wife's, it is likely the lien will have to be paid upon sale of the house. If you have reason to dispute the debt or the lien, you should consult an attorney in your area.
