There are two types of liens that are under the statutory category.
- Mechanic’s liens which consist of a lien that arises when a mechanic or contractor works on a property but does not receive compensation. The person who performs the work then has a vested interest in the property and will receive payment through a portion of the proceeds made upon sale. This type of lien can setback or stop the sale of property if the debt is not taken care of.
- Tax liens which consist of liens placed on property if the owner fails to pay taxes. Any level—local, state or federal—can place a lien on a property for this reason.
