WAG 23-09-01-e: Enforcing Lien

PM 23-09-01-e.

When a client transfers real property covered by the State's lien, HFS must decide how much is needed to satisfy the lien. This amount is the lesser of:

  • the total amount of assistance included in the lien and lien maintenance fees, or
  • the client's share of the net proceeds of the sale after expenses and taxes.

In cases of fraud, HFS may foreclose the lien on the client's property.
