your first step is to send him a demand letter (use certified mail/return receipt) insisting on payment within a specified period of time. if he fails to comply with your demand, you'd then have to sue him. depending on the amount, you may be able to use small claims court to file your suit. that is considered "the people's court" as it requires no legal representation, and you can file the suit yourself.

you may want to call your local small claims court first to see what they tell you about the process.

once you've begun your lawsuit, the court will review your claim and schedule a hearing. the court will issue a judgment in your favor (assuming you can prove your case). of course, he can pay you at any time in this process.

if he fails to make payments based on the judgment awarded to you, you can then file a lien against his property. for this you will likely want to obtain the assistance of an attorney. keep in mind that any costs you incur in trying to obtain your money would be passed along to him also.

Hi free2singout!

Welcome to forums!

I agree with George here that if you want to place a lien on the property, you will have to file a law suit at the small claims court. The court will pass a judgment in your favor and it will help you in placing a lien on the property.

see above for most of the answer, but also keep in mind that $259K is not going to work in small claims court. you'll need to engage the services of a lawyer to sue.

My X husband is sellin ghis ocmpany/ building that we owned when we were married. SInce he has refused to pay child support and owes my son 22,000 in child support, can I place a lean on his property.
I made nothing in the settlement and that is fine, but because he lives in Thailand he thinks he does not need to pay. But his company is in Austin Tx. and he happens to be in town. What can I do? Serving him will do no good. He just ignores the papers and will then leave town.

assuming you have an attorney who can work with you in this situation, you may be able to do something in a reasonable amount of time. where are the courts? they would need to be involved i would think.

Hi Tisha,

In order to place a lien on the property, you will have to file a case in the court. As George has suggested, you will have to take the help of an attorney in this case. If the court passes a judgment in your favor then you would be able to place a lien on his property.

Take Care

Tara you should go back to the court with your questions. if your debtor does not pay according to the terms of the judgment you've received, then the court will allow for a garnishment of her wages or her bank account. they can also direct you (perhaps) on the placing of a lien on her home.

if they are unable to assist with the lien issue, you'd want to discuss this with an attorney, and you may have to seek the attorney's assistance to get this done.

in any event, any of your costs in trying to collect against this judgment should be recoverable. check with the court on that as well, and you'll obviously want to keep copious records of your expenditures.

I sold my house. I have 3 loans on my house during that time and I gave all my loan number and the phone number to them and told on the time of settlement. The third one also primeloan.I have a credit card and I was using card to draw the money. After i yr later I moved and I was not getting the bill. I went to the bank I told the why I am not getting the bill. That is the time they told me the loan is still on that property that I sold. The title company made the mistake. what is the further thing I have to do. The bank told me that is the responsibility of the title company.

mthomas, you need to immediately take this up with whoever was representing you in the sale. if it's the title company, then you must contact them...if you had an attorney, then contact that person.

guest, i am afraid "contact(ing) one time more" is pretty useless advice in this situation.
