Property Lien Services in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

LandQuest Settlements helps sellers discover and satisfy liens with lienholders for a smooth closing process.


What Is a Property Lien?

A property lien is a legal right or claim on property as a security against a debt owed to a creditor.

Liens are typically attached to and transferred with the property. They affect what a property owner can do with their property since creditors have a legal stake in it. If a lien is discovered during a title search, it could make or break the deal for the potential buyer. Even if a buyer is willing to take over a lien, they most likely wouldn't be able to find a lender to finance the purchase.

LandQuest Settlements understands the ins and outs of property liens. We perform a rigorous and exhaustive title search on your property. If there is a lien against your property, we uncover it and work with you to clear it.

Our friendly team of experts helps sellers identify and satisfy with liens lienholders discovered during the title research process for a smooth closing process.
