I wanted to sell the home someone bought for me but no one would buy so I ended up getting involved with a guy from a webuyhouses site. Everything was legally fine with the house but after we signed the contract with this guy he said there was a lien. Disbelieving, I did a lot of research that confirmed that THERE WAS NO LIEN. Now, with that guy and his business partner calling me almost every day and "working on it" on their own the house has suddenly been listed for sale! I steadfastly believe that this guy is the reason. Apparently the banks hadn't registered this because there was NO lien, but this webuyhouses guy kept calling banks announcing a lien that didn't exist and now they've listed the house for sale! Can the owner quit claim deed this into my name to avoid the lien?The owner consented to my selling the house from the beginning. I have found a cash buyer and I'd like to sell it to him, but my question is: Can the owner quit claim this house into my name which will erase the lien seeing as it is not owned by him (the person with the previous foreclosure) and let me sell it to a new buyer?
If there is a lien on the home, a deed will not affect the lien. Where there is a lien on a property, transferring the property to a new owner does not affect the lien. Normally, on the lien holder can release the property from the lien.
