How to Put a Lien on a House?

The easiest way is to create a legal agreement (sometimes referred to as a deed in lieu of foreclosure) and have both parties agree to the terms by signing it with a notary present. If this is not possible because of the situation, then you will have to file for a court judgment. You will need to supply paperwork proving why you should have the lien placed. The court will then set a date to hear both sides of the case and render a judgment as to whether the lien is justified.
