I bought a house with title insurance only to find out later that there is a lien on the property. What do I do now?

Asked over 2 years ago - Longmont, CO

I contacted the title company and spent two weeks just to get contact and they don't want anything to do with me..

I also contacted the H.O.A. who put the lien on and they act like I am a cancer. They are angry and vindictive

    Answered . Was the lien filed before the closing on the property? If so, then review your title insurance and file a claim. If the title company will not honor the claim, then you need to meet with an attorney who handles insurance bad faith claims. You may have to sue the title company.
