Layton Attorney will Help with Wrongful Liens
When a lien, which is an allegation placed on real property in order to secure a debt is placed on a debtor’s property, it could be difficult to sale the property. Even when the property is sold with the lien on it, the creditor gets the money that they have been seeking to receive for the services they provided to improve the property.
There is such a thing as a wrongful lien in Utah real estate law. A wrongful lien is when it is not authorized by:
- State or federal decree
- State court order
- Authorized record with the signature by the owner of the property
A person that files a wrongfully lien can face several civil consequences in the state of Utah, such as:
- Substantial damages that were a result of the wrongful lien
- Not removing the wrongful lien within 10 days of receiving the request to remove it, will result in $3,000 or three times that cost of the damages, including attorney fees-which ever one is greater.
