Why are buyers/sellers encouraged to have a lien released - even after a foreclosure? Most HOA Declarations/CCRs state that the HOA assessments are considered a lien against the property/lot (and as such recording a lien is not required). HOA liens are almost always subordinate to the mortgage lien and they are extinguished via the foreclosure process. However, if an HOA has recorded a lien against a specific property with the county recorder's office, the lien will still show up in a title search (even though it has been extinguished). To avoid future problems for a new homeowner, we recommend the lien be formally released and recorded with the county recorder. Giving the new owner the peace of mind that the title to their property is unencumbered. Lien release fees are paid directly to the Association and cover the time, labor, postage and recording fees involved in having the lien released.
