I asked a similar question a week ago, but I was too vague. So, here’s more details:
I’m in the process of buying my first home, it’s a HUD house. I paid the earnest pay, put in my bid, my bid was accepted, went through the home loan process, got my home owners insurance set up, now all that’s left to do is sign the title. When the title agency started going through all the information, they found a lien on the title. They said that the title agency that HUD went through was suppose to clear all liens on the house and missed one. Now the title agency I’m working through is trying to get this lien cleared. I have been to the home I’m buying several times and a neighbor told me that the previous owners both lost their jobs, got into some serious debt, and the sheriff took the home away from them. The title agency mentioned that the lien is for 0 and should clear quickly. I’ve been waiting 3 1/2 weeks for this lien to clear. I call the title agency regularly and they said all I can do is wait. The title agency copies their corresponding emails to me, so I do see that they’re working on it. I’m getting a little nervous because I need to be out of my apartment by the end of the year. How long should it take for a lien to clear on a HUD house?
