What Does a Lien Report Include?

Are you interested in someone’s tax liens history, amount of unpaid taxes owed to the IRS, or the status of a certain real estate lien? Conduct an instant lien search through our lien record lookup tool to discover tax liens, judgment liens, property liens, bankruptcy filings, and more.


Tax Liens

When such data is publicly available, federal or state tax liens records expose taxpayer’s name, address, the tax type, tax balance, penalty, docket number interest, due date, the amount owed at the time the lien is filed, and lien filing (docket) date.

Judgment Liens

The report could feature the legal judgment liens placed against properties to secure the payment of various legal claims. If someone is sued for damages caused by negligent driving and the insurance doesn't cover the judgment, or they have unpaid debts, more details will show up, including date and lien total amount.

Property Liens

By typing a name, address, or case number, anyone could learn more about real property liens (if registered in public records), such as owner name, instrument or document type (mortgage, lien release data, deed), parcel id, legal description, property title number, or other court records.

Bankruptcy Filings

When available, our report breaks down the main case information into fields such as case number, date filed, bankruptcy court, state, the bankruptcy type (chapter), case disposition, assets, debts, liabilities, and further relevant details.

What is a Lien?

Search Liens With

Liens are a common way for creditors to take and hold control of property belonging to a debtor until the debt is paid. A lien title indicates that a creditor has the right to possess a debtor's property (for instance a vehicle accepted as collateral) to collect what they are owed. All liens typically remain active until the debt or loan is paid off.

6 Types of Liens

  • Federal Tax Liens Imposed by the government for unpaid tax debts with the IRS, including property tax, income tax, and estate taxes. By attaching tax liens to a taxpayer's properties, the federal authorities claim the right to secure the payment of outstanding tax obligations.
  • Judgment Liens Arise when a court grants a creditor an interest in a debtor's property following a judicial verdict to secure a payment claim for an unpaid debt. The property involved secures the buyer's obligation to pay.
  • State Tax Liens Arise when someone is sued for state taxes they haven't paid.
  • Property Tax Liens Occur as a result of unpaid property taxes.
  • Voluntary Liens When the defendant voluntarily agrees to consent liens rather than the court having to enforce them. When there’s a property involved, it secures the buyer's obligation to pay. Common examples include mortgages or security interests.
  • Mechanic's Lien Or contractor's lien. Arises when a contractor works on a property without being paid. If the owner tries to sell the property, the lien acts as a security interest and gives the servicer the right to claim from the proceeds, the amount they are owed for the unpaid work that was completed.

Whether you’re looking for involuntary liens, statutory liens, or judicial liens, a property lien search on could reveal more information about different types of liens (if any is widely accessible). Our easy-to-read findings could feature meaningful fields like liens history, property address, property owner, debtor and creditor information, amount, lien type of filing, relevant interests, tax lien certificate number, and lien status.

Common Questions About Lien Searches

You can perform a lien search online, via or through the county recorder, clerk, or assessor's office website. You'll need the address of the property or the owner's name. Another option would be to contact the title company.

What Is A Lien Search?

A lien search refers to identifying any legal notice attached to a property due to unpaid financial obligations (unpaid tax bills or home expansion invoices known as a mechanic's lien). Liens are usually public records that help creditors collect what they're owed.

How To Do A Lien Search On A Property?

Since liens must be publicly recorded with state and local offices, inquire about property liens with your county clerk or Recorder of Deeds office. In addition, most states have a Department of Revenue, which offers a Lien Search System.

What Is Included In A Municipal Lien Search?

A municipal lien search tracks unrecorded property issues uncovered by a conventional title search. It includes code violations, unpaid utility bills, property taxes, special assessments, open or expired permits associated with any commercial or residential real estate.

How To Find Out If A Vehicle Has A Lien On It?

The easiest way is online. Go to either or your state's DMV website, input the VIN number of the vehicle and request an online title report. Within seconds, the lookup tools will search through millions of public records and pull up the title and the lien information on record.
