What effect will a lien have on my property?

When the Town places a lien on a property the interest rate charged will be changed from the delinquent interest rate to the lien interest rate. Once the lien is placed, it is recorded with the Hillsborough County Registry of Deeds. The property may not be sold or transferred until the lien is paid in full and the lien is discharged. When a lien is placed on a property, it may make it difficult to obtain future loans or mortgages. The Town must notify all lien holders recorded at the Registry when it places a lien on a property. If the lien remains in place on the property for two additional years beyond the first lien year, the property could be taken by the town via the tax deeding process.
