What Are Liens?

The term “lien” derives from a Latin word that means “to bind.” A lien binds, or secures, a debtor’s property until the debt is paid back. The lien allows the creditor to enforce payment of the debt through other legal means if you default on payments. The lienholder also has the authority to determine whether or not the property can be sold.

In Connecticut, there are several types of liens, including:

  • Judgment liens – When a person cannot pay back their debts in a timely manner, the creditor may choose to file a lawsuit against you. If successful, the creditor will obtain a judgment against your property. In Connecticut, judgment liens can be attached to your real estate (such as a house, condo, or land) or their personal property, such as art, antiques, jewelry, and other valuables.
  • Mechanics liens – Also referred to as construction liens, these types of liens are filed by contractors and construction companies when they are not paid for the services they have performed.
  • Property tax liens - If a homeowner fails to pay their real estate taxes, your town or city may choose to file a tax lien against your property. Continual failure to pay these taxes can result in the property being foreclosed with the proceeds being used to pay your tax bill.
  • IRS tax liens – Failure to pay income taxes according to the IRS’s deadlines, can result in a lien being imposed on a person’s current and future assets.
