Lien

« Back to Glossary Index

A lien is a claim made on a property in order to satisfy a debt. Liens are often applied to real estate, although an entity may place a lien on any property to which a debt or obligation is owed. A lien often results when the owner of the property loses a lawsuit, and it compels the owner to meet its terms or risk losing the property.
