Anyone have a mechanic's lien on a propety that eventually ends up as a foreclosure? I filed one to the tune of $875 on a property up the road from us, probably a year and a half ago. Gal skipped out to California, and the placed ended up with the bank. A few weeks ago, I saw some people up there, apparently doing some work, so I stopped and asked if they were purchasing the house. They said, yes, subject to their loan gong through. They were doing some repairs before the appraiser looked at the place. I gave them a card and told them I had mowed the place for 4 years, and if they needed someone to mow, give me a call. I didn't mention the lien. The lady told me they hoped to close about the middle of September, if their financing went through OK. Well, today, someone was there mowing and cleaning up the place, which makes me believe it is a done deal. I have not heard anything regarding my lien. I didn't know how these were handled. Is this done at closing? I had assumed the lien would have to be paid before selling the property, but perhaps not. Don't have a clue what bank has the place, but I do have the number of the realty company that had it listed. I'm assuming the buyers went through them. Do you think I should call the realty company and ask them about it, or try to find out the bank that has the property, and contact them, or just wait and see what happens? Thanks.
