I'm trying to understand on how lien is being recorded.
A creditor won a judgment against me. I called the LA Country Recorder office, and spoke to someone there, that searched my record. However, she told me that record is searched based on name and not real property ?
I'm confused. I thought a lien is placed against your real property, not your name ?
Please advise.I'm still trying to understand the sequence of process. So if the court issued an abstract of judgment, does the court need to mail this out to all parties, so that the creditor can take this 'judgment letter' to the recorder office and it becomes a judgment lien ? OR The abstract judgment already becomes an judgment lien against me on the day the court issued it without having the creditor bringing it to the recorder office ? I appreciate any advise and feedback...!!!
