PM 23-09-01-g: Releasing a Lien

WAG 23-09-01-g

The lien is released when any of the following happens:

  • Everything owed is paid, up to the value of the property or the client's portion of the property.
  • A bond is filed guaranteeing that what is owed will be paid. There must be legal guarantees before agreeing to the bond.
  • An AABD client is discharged from a medical institution and returns to the home which has a lien filed against it.
  • An AABD Cash case is closed for reasons besides the death of the client and there is a spouse and minor children. For example, when taking the lien off the property will help the family become self-supporting and reduce the chance they will have to receive cash benefits again.
  • The lien was filed by mistake.
