Consult with a lawyer in person who knows construction law. It is a very specialized area of the law and that means 1) don't try to deal with it yourself, and 2) get someone who really knows construction law.
I agree with Mr. McCormick. It sounds as though you are dealing with a mechanic's lien. You will want to speak to an attorney familiar with that area of law. There are tricky rules involved in foreclosure of a mechanic's liens.
You'll have to file legal action to 'clear title' unless you can get the lien holder to voluntarily remove it.
If serious about hiring counsel to help in this, and if this is in SoCal courts, feel free to contact me. Iíll be happy to help fight and get the best outcome possible.
