How do you put a lien on someones property?
If someone owes you money and you don't think they will pay you back (IRS problems, bankruptcy, etc), can you put a lien on their house so at least you could get your money back when its sold? I called the county clerks office and got two different answers. The first time they said you can not put a lien on someones house unless you were a contractor and they owed you money for something to do with the house. The second person said I needed to just go to an office supply store and get a lien form and bring it to the clerks office to record. Whats the process? I don't want to go to small claims court because they don't have any money!
