What are judgments and liens?

Any decision issued by a judge or court official on behalf of a judge is considered a lien or a judgment.  These can be related to anything that is decided in court whether it is criminal or civil. 

What are types of judgments?

One of the most common forms of judgments is in the case of child support or custody decisions.  When a judge or mediator decides how much will be paid or to whom, this becomes a legal decision.  Another type is divorce cases. The results of these will often appear on searches.  Bankruptcy is a court decision as well and will appear on public records.  Also, issues brought before a small claims court can be classified in this way. 

What are types of liens?

Tax liens are the most common type today.  They are getting more and more attention due to the fact that they are becoming more frequently issued.  When a person does not pay their taxes in full to the city, county or state that issues the property tax the process is started to issue a tax lien.  Each state varies in its laws, but typically how it works is that the lien is issued and the owners are given a certain amount of time to repay the owed taxes.  If the person does not pay in full, along with fines and fees for paying late, then their property is confiscated and then resold by the governing official to make up for the amount of money that was not paid in taxes.  Liens are attached to one property, not to an owner, so if the property is sold then the new deed holder is responsible for the back taxes.

Why search for judgments and liens?

There are several reasons why someone might look up judgments and liens against a person or a property.  An individual might do a search for these things to see if there are any results about themselves.  If you suspect that you were involved with something that may have a judgment against it, or if you owned property that may have a lien against it then doing a search is a good idea.  This way you can begin the process to clear up the situation and remove any negativity associated with your name. 

Real estate investors or people who are interested in purchasing a house are wise to do a search regarding liens against a property. If there is a lien on a property it follows the property itself rather than the owners. So if a property is purchased then the new owner would be responsible to clear up the lien. 

Employers and volunteer organizations search for information about judgments and liens to determine if someone ought to be hired or associated with their company.  They typically look for certain things in their background checks, but anything that appears in a search can reflect on a person’s character and it may be used to determine if that person will be the one getting a call back.
