Ok thanks Garry, is it possible just to go ahead file a lien without a judgment on their home in Ark. to protect the note so when they move for a loan or a sale of their property our lien will be in place to be paid?! thanks, we did this to the same party on a Florida property in the Fort Walton Beach courts they owned, back in 2008, -- unfortunately in the real estate crunch back then they short sale the property since it was upside down, but it did work since I had to release the lien for them to sell it, so we want to do the same thing on their Ark property in the county courts there.-- Dr Tony
